Hi Team,

We are almost half way through this month. My soft goal is to have all 
chapters in a merge proposal by end of this month. If you're interested 
in a nice graphical representation of approximately where we are, please 
check this out

- If you'd like to help with this effort, your help is needed and time 
is not on our side. Please do adopt a chapter on all instructions are already on that page

- If you already adopted a chapter, kindly update your chapters' status 
to one of:
   * TODO: Someone needs to adopt this
   * TODO + YourName : I am planning to review this sub-chapter. It will 
be ready for a merge proposal by end of this month
   * INPROGRESS: I am already on it, will be ready by end of month
   * PROPOSED: Merge proposal filed
   * DONE: Merged
