As you may have noticed I've just moved over the rest of the easy JIRA that
relate to samples for 1.1 and that mostly got deferred last time round.
These are primarily README type fixes and take little effort to either fix
or discount so I'll get on with them. I've still not had any feedback on how
people feel about the harder technical JIRA that remain outstanding.

Currently I'm waiting for a few things before I can potentially cut the
branch. In particular,

Venkat's last policy changes (he's committed but there may be a few
adjustments to make)
Some help with the Saxon dependency

This means the formal branch won't happen for a couple of days yet. However,

Should we get some more of the outstanding JIRA fixed for 1.1?
If so which ones (I moved some of the likely candidates to 1.1 before
Christmas but not all), i.e. who is going to do what ?

Personally there are a couple of domain related JIRAs I want to fix but I
need to know from everyone whether I should go ahead and cut the branch
(once I'm in a position to do so) or whether we are going to spend some time
fixing JIRA.
