Hello world,

this is just a friendly note to let you know that it is less than 2  
weeks until the code freeze (for real).  I'm currently traveling, but  
I'll compile a detailed list of what I believe are important patches  
somewhere next week.  In the mean time, the list mentioned in the  
last status update on drupal.org will do.

At the top of my head are (no internet connection):

   1. Various patches that improve performance and/or scalability.   
I'm specifically interested in (i) splitting SQL reads and writes and  
(ii) merging the node and node_comment_statistics tables.  There are  
pending issues for both, spear-headed by David.  There are other  
performance related patches too.

   2. Various menu module fixes -- it's time to get these taken care  
of and to unleash teh chx and polowadin.  ;)

   3. Actions module patch that John is working on. I spent quite a  
bit of time reviewing this patch, as did Gabor and it is nearing  
completion. There is a couple of things we need to figure out still,  
but overall, it looks well on its way to get committed this week.

   4. The module notification module that Derek and Earl are working on.

   5. The node render patch that Eaton started work on a while ago.   
I don't think that is been committed yet, but Eaton recently reminded  
me about how important this is to further unify and clean-up the CCK  
and core.

That should get us started! ;-)
