More standardization between the desktop and the pi units. Docker support for the services would be fantastic too! Easier control of the hardware on the mark units (being able to update the aurdino easily), but only if it can be done securely.
The mark units should come with custom passwords that are sent along with the units (root, pi, mycroft accounts) no default passwords.
the pairing skill should be able to just pass the username and password of your home.mycroft.ai account rather than having to have a computer nearby to manually type the verification(it can stay as an option though).
As many of the setup features should be able to done without internet access as possible.
It should be easier to setup my own “home.mycroft.ai”.
Lastly https://www.openmined.org/ might be a good way to let people be decentralized and still contribute to the data collection.
All this being said, I really like where this project seems to be going! I hope that my critics/wishs don’t show how cool it has been playing with this!
