If you can create a cheatsheet for the merging process, it would help 
out others.
I followed what I put in at the end of:

The only burning issue with the IDM merge was the code was deleted 
before we could check everything is ok. :)

Agorova is a full fledged social app. What we need in PL is 
authentication with social networks. We brainstormed the probability of 
Agorova providing a thin library of JSON calls that we can use to 
authenticate with social networks. Then both agorova and PL can use this 
thin library.
