So we've hit our proposal freeze.  Thanks for getting all of that into
jira and the wiki.  If there is ANYTHING outstanding that needs to get
proposed for 4.1, now is the time to raise it.  I'd really prefer to
not have new proposals once I start the review process (outlined

We've got 74 new features and 34 improvements proposed.  That's quite

(3) have a functional spec either done or started
(4) have a doc's sub-task for doc changes (we'll need to ensure that
someone volunteers to document the feature)
(5) have a test sub-task for functional testing (we'll need to ensure

(6) appropriately classified as a new feature or improvement
(7) identified clearly as blocked by another issue, if they are

blocker for a feature that relies on it)
(8) noted as coming in via review-board vs asf repo feature branch merge

Expect some followup questions on many of these items early next week
as I get through the list (and I may ask others to help with the
