Good, having a goal will help involving everyone.

a agree with you but i also use to call refactoring "rebugging" :) so
i would go smoothly with low level refactoring.

well i guess we were able to find that out :o)

I used it years ago for a c projet, basically it is a codebase parser
that works like javadoc (search metatages in comments) so we should be
at home

We should setup a wiki where we could put our 'best-practices',
roadmap, tips and tricks etc...

xml decks that are not restored in the UI the wahy they were stored, i
guess it is related databases changes that cannot be pushed to xml
data (card id that change value between two updates for example)

Well i won't sign for QA :o), but having some unit test to avoid
rebugging would be great, especially in the future if we split the app
in persistance/business/ui.
