Given that a lot of this work has been going on behind the scenes, maybe a hangout sometime next week would be a good idea? We could discuss the general plan, current status, what still needs to be done, etc. and get everyone who is interested on the same page.

Hi all,

I've added a card for the next steps for Rockstar here:

This essentially reduces yt's interaction with Rockstar to just
calling "groupies" which does not require any communication on
Rockstar's part.  The process is now to use yt to identify FOF nodes
and then filter them with Rockstar.  (In my head, for some reason, I
keep thinking of this as "rocketeer.")  In that card is a pastebin
that includes a working script for doing this with the current state
of the yt repo, although I think there's an off-by-one error, and the
units might be a bit wrong.

Anyway, one nice thing about this is that we can feed in different or
additional "filters" instead of Rockstar into this -- for instance,
Pfister's isoden method.  It also means we can control the domain
decomp a bit more in-depth.
