Thanks David. I know this is painful but in the end we'll be in a better place.

I'm going  to take a pass at bugs assigned to Mick.

If I get through that list, I'll start in on

These are just bugs, not tweaks or features.

Hello Committers,

I'd like to organize our work for 8u20 this week.  Recall that 8u20 is about 
improving the quality of FX rather than implementing new features.

Bug Owners:

I suggest that we implement "Bug Pass Friday" where component owners and 
reviewers assess their bug backlog, clean up really old bugs that no longer apply and 
target the remaining bugs for either 8u20 or 9.  In the case of bugs that don't have 
steps or sample code (and otherwise can't be reproduced), we should close them as 
'Incomplete and ask nicely for more information:

Otherwise, please check the priority and adjust accordingly.  Of course, 
crashes, exceptions and failed functionality tend to rate high.

Component Owners:

We have bugs that are unassigned or assigned to the wrong person. Component 
owners are asked to do a pass and ensure that all bugs that are assigned are 
assigned to owners or reviewers.  Of course there will be exceptions and when 
in doubt, email the list or contact us and we will update the code ownership 

Unassigned bugs can stay that way or be assigned.  It is likely that Kevin and 
I will do a pass on the unassigned bugs at a later time but if you know that a 
bug belongs to a certain person, assign it.

This Tuesday is our first milestone and it will be uneventful because of the 
holidays.  However, starting next week, we should have a good idea about the 
work that lies ahead and how much trouble we are in!

Steve and Kevin
