Greetings Stackers!

The VMwareAPI subteam had a two week break from meetings. So happy new
year to all! I hope everyone had a nice break. The Icehouse-2
milestone is coming up January 23rd! That means if you have a patch in
flight right now we need to get you ready for core-reviewers in the
next 2 weeks so, if you have feedback on a patch you've posted try and
get right back on those. If you have an open patch or blueprint
*please* review at least *two* other blueprints besides your own!

Our icehouse-2 list turns out to be rather ambitious. Let's stay on
top of these.

[ omitted ... bunch-o-reviews needing vmware people attention ... ]

As an experiment, here's a full listing... for those who care to see it:
... this might also afford people the ability to commentate in interesting ways.

BTW we collaborate as a team on our blueprint priority orders & bug
priorities here:
