The 2.3 configuration needs some work. David will investigate.
The decision was taken to not forward-port the real-exe code from 2.2 to 2.3. Philipp will write some documentation about how to debug real-mode assembler code.
PCI has been tested to a limited extent. It enumerates devices, but an unrelated bug is preventing further testing.
Martin has cleaned up the serial and console code. He will commit his changes tomorrow after he's tested it.
Scott has looked at the checksumming code and will hopefully get some time to work on it this coming week.
Paul has been looking at ftr's debug code.
Matthew will describe the new __initcall feature in an email to the list.
Paul is thinking about a wide-mode bootloader.
Dave is working on getting the SOM linker to work on i386 Linux. philipp has some additional patches he will send.
Signals were discussed and no-one felt that they wanted to deal with them.
Deb was nominated to draw a martini glass.
