Yes, today's epic F12 blocker bug review meeting has finally ended. Some

We reviewed 43 bugs in total. The meeting took 406 minutes, at an
average of 9.44 Minutes Per Bug (MPB). Thanks to Marko Myllynen for
suggesting the calculation. :)

We reduced the number of open blocker bugs (excluding second-level
blocker tracker bugs like the X, Anaconda, virtualization and KDE
trackers) from 43 to 25. Of the remaining 25, there is one in NEW state,

Here's the assignee breakdown for non-MODIFIED bugs:

2: Jerome Glisse, Adam Jackson
1: Dave Airlie, Ben Skeggs, Christoph Hellwig, David Zeuthen, William
Jon McCann, Jiri Moskovc, Matthias Clasen (probably mis-assigned), Steve

We have plans in hand for most of the remaining NEW and ASSIGNED bugs,
so overall the picture for getting all F12 blocker bugs resolved on time
is reasonably rosy as long as we get stuff done over the weekend and
early part of next week.

have a LOT of time) is available at

Huge thanks to James Laska, Jesse Keating, Ray Strode, Chuck Ebbert,
Jerome Glisse, Will Woods, Denise Dumas, Matthias Clasen, Dave Airlie,
Bill Nottingham, Filipe Rosset, Chris Lumens, Jeremy Katz, Marko
Myllynen, Eric Paris, Paul Frields, Seth Vidal and Ben Williams for
sticking around through Giganto-Meeting and providing all the necessary
input, this one was a real team effort.

If anyone has any ideas to reduce these meetings in time somewhat, they
would be greatly welcomed on test-list. I can't think of much that
wouldn't involve someone taking more executive decisions pre-meeting,
