These patches look as though they were after the proposal freeze, and some patches are currently out of date.

Apologies, this missed the deadline for Feature Freeze. Please rebase patches as soon as Juno opens, and we will try to get this in during that period. --johnthetubaguy (5th March 2014)

This blueprint needs more details in the above next (not the associated google doc) about what configuration params are being added, and what they mean, to help the docs people. So unapproving this blueprint. --johnthetubaugy
