== Dx integration ==
Review components and timelines. A lengthy discussion ensued:
  * Kubuntu/KDE app plans were not sufficiently fleshed out to assess 
status. This should be resolved by the next meeting.

  * Messaging indicator work will include the indicator itself, as well 
as well as patched evolution and pidgin. Other apps will have to be 
patched by upstream/community. The Dx team will provide documentation 
and examples to facilitate this, though this will be available later in 
the cycle.

  * How to handle notifications that include an action and/or a timeout 
was not determined. This needs to be clarified asap.
