Greetings Stackers!

We're recovering from a long weekend here in the US. Sorry for this getting out late. Here's the weekly run-down of the state of affairs for the VMwareAPI portions of nova. We should try and push as many things up to the "ready for core review" status as we can by Friday. I decide that something is "ready for core review" if I see several +1's from people I trust to have reviewed the patch properly.

I'll be carving out extra time for myself to conduct code reviews the next couple weeks so I can help people get their code in good enough shape that the core-reviewers will be likely to give their +2 without hesitation. If you have a review you want me to track, give input on, or just include in this list then add me as a reviewer http://i.imgur.com/XLINkt3.png using my username "hartsocks" (not my email) and clicking "Add Reviewer".

Blueprints targeted for Havana-2:
* https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/improve-vmware-disk-usage - started but depends on
