Friendly reminder that the above schedule is in place, meaning that we
have ~2 days until the feature freeze/branchpoint.

Noticeable work for inclusion:
 - Etnaviv driver: Looking good and ready for merging.
 - On-disk shader cache: There's still patches lacking review.

If people have outstanding patches which need work, are not reviewed,
other, I suggest getting on it.
Do coordinate with others (irc/email/etc.) if your work seems to be
missing some love. We're human and might have missed/forgotten about
some patches.

On a related note:
As suggested by Marek (et al.) Mesa versioning scheme will be going a
small update. Namely, the major number will be bumped at the beginning
of each year and shall reflect the last two digits of the respective
year. I would like to thank Marek for the suggestion and everyone who
took part in the related discussion.
