Banana Slug release plan

Target end date

June 30, 2014

In a nutshell

The two major focuses of this release will be to a) open up the DAMS to campus library partners for new content and active editing and b) develop wireframes for the public interface. Depending on the velocities of these two sub-projects, we may stage them as separate releases.
