**** FConfig data; harder than it sounds; fortunately located one thanks

**** to NSLU2 folks

** - Contacted upstream about licensing and maintenance

** - Started patching fconfig for various bugs and

**** trying to get it to write fconfig data from scratch; gave up on that

*** will enable and push when a) we get fixed kernels on the buildds and

*** b) I submit the glibc hwcaps changes

* * Poked Pango upstream about which performance benchmarks to run

*** against this -- the differences with calls to pango-view or gtkperf

*** were not visible

* * Looked into providing a patch stack for cairo as well, moving the

*** packaging to a VCS first

* * Wrote up a status for the iMX51 kernel for Alpha 6

* * Ordered replacement jax10 from SFR

* * Reported and collected profiling info on ckbcomp's slowness on armel

properly you may notice that you'd been infected :)
