Hey everyone!

I missed the meeting today, but here's a summary of where I am at with 
each of my items (feel free to add anything I missed).

=== Menulibre(2) ===
The rewrite/restructure of MenuLibre has been moving along quite well. 
The application does not currently do any editing, but the majority of 
that code is going to be imported from the original. It does read the 
current menu structure correctly and I'm working on being able to also 
write that menu structure. The interface is also pretty much complete, 
unless there are suggestions or concerns...

* Interface is complete
* Menus and menu items are correctly read and processed
* Menu editing is under way
* Once complete, get it packaged and uploaded to debian

=== Mugshot ===
There is not a terrible lot that needs to be done for mugshot. I need 
to do some debugging however, as the camera portion of the application 
seems a bit flaky on my new laptop.

* Figure out camera woes
* Remove yelp dependency, get rid of help button
* Get packaged and uploaded to debian (hopefully with Noskcaj's help)

=== Catfish ===
There are some outstanding bugs in the 13.04 and 13.10 versions, I'll 
be addressing those soon. Additionally, there are some new debian bugs 
which I also hope to address shortly and the fixes will roll back into 

* LP #1258713: [NEW] Catfish crashing with gi._glib.GError: Icon 
'camera-photo' not present in theme
* Debian #731363: catfish: depends on locate undocumented and without 
favoring mlocate

=== Parole Media Player ===
Simon and I have finished the GTK3 port, and have been working with 
other contributors on a new MPRIS2 plugin. There is still the 
outstanding issue of packaging in Ubuntu that makes the plugins not 
work, we'll need to investigate. The last time I checked, the packaging 
was working correctly in debian.

* New GTK3 version
* New MPRIS2 plugin
* 0.5.91 to be released this weekend
* Plugin packaging to be investigated

=== LightDM GTK+ Greeter ===
We've had a new contributor to the greeter, adding lots of fixes and 
new functionality. We'll be doing the first development release this 
cycle shortly, and we're going to need significant testing for all the 
new things we've added. I'll be extending the lightdm-gtk-greeter PPA 
with trusty builds sometime in the next few days.

* New contributor adding lots of fixes and new features
* Trusty packages coming to the PPA shortly

Let me know if there are any questions or concerns.
