Oooh ouch, way to overwhelming for a realtime irc meeting, but as least has some over lap with my little reminder list, FWIW:
- Start/resume UI work
- Journal backup downstream deployment implementations
- Touch/tablet UI work
- Smolt CP icon for submitting HW profiles #949
- CP icons for HW not present can be hidden (David)?

Thanks for the reminder ;) yes I have a few of these tickets open in my browser tabs, usually the more actionable 'artwork wanted' type things that I think I might get to. Again not really focused enough for a meeting agenda, unless it just a generally reminder for interested parties to look through the list if they have free cycles.
FWIW2, for me, the next design meeting is focused on the Start/resume design efforts, I'm sure we'll likely cover a some other items at the end of the meeting if folks have time, but I'd hate to see the hopefully productive time deteriorate into what I watched happening at the last dev meeting.
