Whiteboard

[asac 11-06-2010]: added arm-m-ui-and-test-heads as rdependency of this spec
[asac 20-07-2010]: we use a .sh script that has lh config with all the options used to configure the lh tree now.

Dropped documentation changes. Too much work for too little value for Linaro. Too much other work to do. Blueprint finished.
