Both of these GLEPs are still pending progress on the above commitments.
We cannot move forward before these steps are completed. If for some
reason we still haven't seen the above or a detailed reason describing
the lack thereof by the meeting, let's get live updates there.

What, if anything, do you think we should do here? I looked over the
discussion on -dev and it wasn't entirely clear to me what needed to
happen next.

Mart, perhaps you could fill us in -- do you need to respond to some of
the open questions?

Other than that, I didn't see any requests on the announcement thread.
Let's get an update on open bugs.
