Not much has changed besides internal workings, right?
Though perhaps that's still significant enough for 0.8.

Amir seems to be more and more absent these days, so it might be nice to setup
a successor failsafe in the event that he cannot be reached. It would be a
shame for the BIP process to fall apart merely because we can't get numbers
But more important to the success of BIP today, I think, is encouraging wider
community participation. The stratum mining mess seems to be a direct result
of lack of participation in the GBT BIP process (resulting in it not being as
ideal as some pools desire) and lack of any peer review/contribution toward
the stratum protocol. What can we do to increase awareness of BIP and
encourage more collaboration?
