    • Would need dump of wiki:
    • Moving FAQ to devel doc is ok. It will be quite easy to update and create PR from GitHub
  • Jupyter notebook integration
    • Since python env in Slicer is not standard, look like there is less interest into having IPython integration ?
    • Having loose coupling and pushing/pulling data from/to is a way forward
