        • aries-sdk-javascript should move into aries-framework-javascript
        • other SDKs renamed as Frameworks?
      • Can have a separate SDK artifact in the Framework repository, if desired.
    • When can we deprecate the Indy SDK wrappers?
      • Overlap in development between Indy and Aries. New developers should start in Aries.
      • Hard to maintain CI / CD and do bug fixes for environments and wrappers we don't use.
