I got this weeks report out a bit late this week because I spent the time I usually use for the task writing a Python script to help me manage this report. Sorry for the formatting it's a Work in Progress.

You should take notice that some abandoned patches are there because they had a single -1 vote and were neglected by the patch submitter for long enough. There is some good work that is could get lost if we don't circle back around on it. Havana-3 is looming on us, so let's try and salvage some of that work that was really close but not quite there yet.

Personally, I'm dealing with a set of test failures that arose from another set of merges (yay! merges! I love it!) that only fail once my patch is over-laid on top of the new changes. So I'm busy reworking that. I've marked my own change "work in progress" while I'm resolving that issue.

I'm now pulling how many votes are on a change, you'll notice some are quite popular and have as many as +10 votes from the vmwareapi subteam members and the community but are being down voted for some reason. If you're going to act on the down vote, perhaps you should put your patch in "Work in Progress" as well while you deal with the feed back? It makes it easier to understand whether you are ignoring the feedback (because you feel it is wrong) or if you are working on the feedback actively.

So, here's our fancy new stats:
