Thanks Sean!

How about this to catch us up:

1. This week I'll propose one change per team[1] to create a release
   from the current HEAD for stable/pike and tag that as pike-em
2. Just like with other procedural releases teams are free to +/-1 /
   suggest fixes.
3. We merge any that have PTL/Liaison +1 as we get the approvals
4. Any that aren't explicitly -1'd by April 22nd get merged that week
5. Others get discussed at the Summit/PTG.
6. We release the remainders during the week of May 6th
7. May 13th we formally transition pike to EM

Yours Tony.
