Issues, Cleanup Tasks, etc
Some Action Items to be addressed before the next release as well as some cleanup tasks that should be completed before then.
Current tentative branch date: Mar 12, 2013 (initially Feb 04, waiting btrace patch series).
[NAME] at the beginning of each item is the name of a point of contact who will help trying to get the issue fixed faster.
The following items were moved to "optional" because there was no clear obvious indication of what should be done. We did not want to delay the corrective release further for them.
