I may not make it to todays blocker meeting (if there is one), so
here's another update on where we standing:

Some progress here. Don't to 14 blockers at mu last counting.

We got a newer patch for this, not sure it changes our position wrt to
skipping this for 3.0.

This has landed yesterday, with a workaround that still puts the
nm-applet icon in the status area if NM 0.8 is running. To get the
full experience, you need NM 0.9.

The network panel is looking much better now, after another round of
UI review and patching by Jon + me and feature work by Richard. I
don't think this is on the blocker list anymore. I should point out
that the panel does _not_ work with NM 0.8, it will just show a 'we're
sorry' dialog. So, getting NM 0.9 released (and available in Fedora
and other GNOME3 early-adopter distros) is a high priority, maybe even
a blocker item.

This has landed today, and a list of remaining multihead issues is
being tracked in bugzilla. No longer blocker material either.
Overall, I would say we've made great progress in the last few days.
Which is great, since I will be out from Fri-Sun, so no more blocker
fixes from me before code freeze...
