[Usability] RE: UI-Review - Monday Jan 19th!

Well done, Bryan. This seems to be going well. Can you describe the changes
that are being made so far? Are they general usability changes or simple HIG
compliance, or both?

People, remember that you have only until February 9th before the Hard UI
code freeze:

So you should try to get changes discussed and in actual patches as soon as
possible. Remember that it can take a week or so for a patch to be applied,
if you are lucky, and it is already January 20th. By my calculations, that
gives you approximately 10 days of useful ui-review time left.
