Now trunk is open for liberty, just a quick reminder that its now a
great time to review and submit nova-specs.

Don't forget about the quick way of moving your spec to liberty using
the commit tag:
"Previously-approved: kilo"

As ever, any questions, just ping me on IRC, and I can help you work
out what needs doing.
