There's a lot more nuance in the detailed meeting minutes, but you're
absolutely right that the Android work needs to (and does!) take priority
here.

Basically, we would like to start having some high-level conversations
about what an iOS equivalent to android-components might look like.  Not
necessarily to start on it with any urgency, but to ensure that we don't
make short-term decisions that make such an effort harder for ourselves
down the line.

I expect the first concrete work on that front to be porting the logins-api
component to iOS, so that it can be used in Lockbox for iOS, which will
happen sometime in 2019.

Does it seem a little saner when framed in that way? :-)

   Cheers,

     Ryan
