To be clear, danny and rfk are working on the Firefox accounts server.  Sam, Jed, and sometimes myself and zaach are working on FxA in FxOS.

jgruen and rfeeley and myself meet today.  We're really talking about minimalistic new UI here.  We need an account creation flow, and some preferences.

But, thought I'd share what I've learned, to try to give signin folks a sense of the ludicrous speed at which FxA needs to build. Signin devs, if you want to lend a hand, it's probably a good idea to do it soon (just some friendly advice).

So the sync effort is *mostly* unaffected in the 1.3 push for firefox accounts.  Essentially what's happened is that we're landing a subset of the work being done for sync (firefox accounts) on firefox os - in parallel with sync work.  On FirefoxOS - this will fuel login to multiple services and login at ftu.  On desktop and android, Firefox Accounts will support the sync feature.

Does this make sense?
