Hi Colin!

I’m somewhat confused about the Smart House. Is it a native-style web

It is an "open it in your browser" web application. You can explore it at
https://smarthouse-dev.remex.hdm-stuttgart.de/#/ (it's a dev server, but it
should be fairly stable). Start with the Living room/multimedia system -
other devices are currently being implemented. We have followed the
documentation on the wiki for integration with the cloud-based Flow
http://wiki.gpii.net/index.php/Flow_Manager_API. In a nutshell, we are
making a call to
get the relevant settings. The source code resides in an SVN repository at
HDM and you should ask Christophe for permanent access.

Such pointers are more than welcome and should be shared with all SP3
implementers. To make sure we are not falling behind on documentation, do
you think it is feasible to make it a requirement for considering a given
task complete? That is, each pull request exposing a new API or changing an
existing one should link to a wiki page documenting it. It might seem like
a big overhead, but it is a good way to keep documentation up to date.
