Agenda:

* Status updates
* Recent benchmark results
* Problems / issues
* What's left - where do we go from here?

[steve-mcintyre] to approach the glibc folk to attract interest on ARM: TODO
[markos-genesi-usa] rerun some of these benchmarks - list will be based on the curiously suspicious benchmarks. Will also run some browser benchmarks (eg javascript related): TODO
[steve-mcintyre, markos-genesi-usa] publish a LWN article on the benefits of hardfloat in order to raise the interest: TODO
[markos-genesi.usa] extend the gcc tests to avoid the toolchain to break in every release ABI: TODO

(?)
