Karmic spec drafting: all approved

Karmic feature work:
 * desktop-karmic-automagic-python-build-system:
  * completed upstream build system for all interesting file types, fixed lots of bugs
  * version 2.2 with current feature set uploaded to sid and karmic
  * completed test suite for existing features

 * [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Halsectomy|hal deprecation]]: No progress this week
 * gnome-panel speedup:
  * discussed with Vincent Untz at LinuxTag; we have the same goal and approach
  * no development progress this week; this will be attacked after above three, since this does not have rever

Other work done:
 * Bug fixing: apport, udev, devicekit-power, hal-info, jockey, pkgbinarymangler
 * Defined my goals for 9.10 cycle

 * Reviewed ubuntuone packages on revu
 * Spec reviews/approvals
