- Nearly everything we do is "rolled up", but this is one thing we should be project-specific on, since EMO uses for some IP Review priority, if needed. The auto-ip logs might end up using it, etc.
- Any new CQs required for new Java EE spec's? Remember "end of M5" will be deadline for all Helios CQ's to be submitted.

Note: these (and our plan dates) are on 'Friday' of the week. But, we produce and test the build on Thursday of the week, and ideally declare on Thursday. The dates in the Google Web Tools group calendar are for 'Thursdays' since that's a calendar for committers. We give ourselves the buffer to Friday, as our "public" date, that others can pick up our build, just in case a regression is found on Thursday and we have to respin and retest. [Technically, some might say, we still have till the following Tuesday or Wednesday for "Simultaneous Release" due date ... but it's hard to do much in that window, without disrupting everyone ... so we'd not use that buffer, except for the worst emergencies.]
- Ok to remove unused performance bundles? See bug 295202.

quickchanges for JUnit V4
- Team Programming: who has solved the model-xml-emf-schema-network issue before? (See bug 296544).
