For the vHackfest, I'd like to propose a topic around how we can test and migrate to the MD-SAL without breaking the current code.
The naive approach of a single mega-update that introduces the MD-SAL, any relevant adaptor bundles, and any other changes that need to be made to the bundles above/below the SAL seems untenable. Based on some of the commits I've been seeing, I'm not sure that the plan is to go the route of full backward compatibility via adaptor bundles either.
I think a lot of us would be interested in discussing and better understanding how we're going to move forward here given the far-reaching ramifications of this shift.
