  * Mir

      o Landed dma buff file descriptors vs GEM for passing client buffers
      o Landed simplified main event loop for server events
      o Landed some cleanup/simplification around surface event handling
        setting, "mirshared" input vs "mirandroid"
      o Landed fb management code to deliver proper buffer order & wait
        if there's nothing to show
      o MP's made for surface states, use of mir fbnativewindow vs 3rd
        party type for HWC to consume, put input focus selection into
        its own ctlr vs in input manager
  * UnityNext UI
      o Completed deep dive review with design on greeter infographic,
        ui layout started & work with unity API on interface
      o Fixed the jenkins test coverage reporting to be accurate
      o Doing another little "option" task around HUD ux
      o Landed several tests: launcher, tiles, some indicator, clock,
        search, panel, sidestage, People preview, lvwph, flow view
      o Continued review/rework of branches for notification, use of
        indicator from lock screen (user story), and closing apps from
        Apps view in Dash (user story)
      o Addressed a couple of FIXMEs: hudclient, indicators; some TODOs
        under way in People & Video dash views
      o Removed some dead code
      o MP's for testing menu items , cleaned up some hardcode
        application fakes (fake there but nicely abstracted),

      o Land MP's for edge type, remainder of mir native fb, separate
        input object cntlr, surface states
      o Do some more bug fixing
      o Continue work towards MP on hw cursor, mir sdl for phone emu,
        demo shell w/ input filters
      o do baseline on performance, cursory analysis
  * UnityNext UI

      o continue effort to reimpl LVWPH
      o See an MP for using indicators from lockscreen
