That means 62 blueprints approved for Pike (this cycle). This does not 
mean the code is merged and the blueprint is completed. It means we 
agreed on the design proposal and can move forward with code for the 

Several up for review means there are approved blueprints with code 
ready for review (they have started, or are more than just a POC). These 
numbers are probably low right now, but all blueprints targeted for Pike 
[1] with Delivery status of "Needs Code Review" is what I'm referring to 
here, which is currently 38.

As for incoming work, and the ratio you point out, is not unusual in the 
first milestone before we do our spec freeze, where we then stop 
accepting new blueprint proposals for the release so we can focus on 
implementing and reviewing what we've already planned to do.

If you want a much more detailed explanation of the numbers and trends, 
I provided that after the Ocata release [2].
