Summary of Discussion:

- Milestone M3 Development (due 10/4)

   * Agreed to not include hot device identity code in CGLE 1.0 since it is 
     currently in pre-alpha state. 

   * Deliverables from restructured driver hardening project are now moved
     CGLE 2.0 (see details below)

   * No status on selectable schedule policy framework feature. Ram and
     Mika to follow up offline with project maintainer.

   * All other development items are on track for 10/4 check in.

- Milestone M3 Validation Suites (due 10/15)

   * IBM will be the validation maintainer for IPv6. Due to the porting
effort of
     migrating the tests from BSD to Linux, these validation suites will
come in
     after 10/15. Date to be finalized next week.

   * No status on software live upgrade, selectable scheduler policy 
     framework and kernel debugger authentication validation suites. Ram and
     Mika to follow up offline.

   * All other validation items are on track for 10/15 completion.

- Driver hardening update

   * Based on Linux kernel mailing list feedback, this project will be
     partitioned into two separate endeavors - driver hardening
     and instrumentation (diagnostics, statistics, event logging, etc).

   * Current spec will morph into a Driver Hardening HOWTO and will be 
      created in conjunction with the kernel janitor project.

   * Instrumentation projects will each be worked independently as separate 

   * Instrumentation code that is currently checked into cvs (CRMS, CSM,
     will be pulled out.

- Validation run plan

   * Agreed to the validation run plan that calls for weekly runs of
     tests and once in 3wks runs of manual tests.

   * Integration will produce weekly pre-milestone builds that will be used
     these validation runs.

- Opens:

   * Project home pages on developer.osdl.org should be populated with 
     project links, description and docs (or links to docs). Agreed that the

     project reviews we've done could be leveraged for this. A new doc
     milestone will be added to the milestone plan.

   * There is a new scalability patch available that is preemption
     Initial regression tests are showing that bugs found previously are not
     recreatable. Integration will proceed with checking in this patch.

- ARs:
   * Rob: Remove driver instrumentation code from cvs

   * All project maintainers: Populate project home pages
