pitti, 2011-05-23: Move LP work earlier, as it's blocking client-side development.

mterry, 2011-07-06: Nautilus plugin doesn't work as is. Needs https://code.launchpad.net/~quickly-committers/quickly/nautilus-bar-updates/+merge/67070 to get it to a runnable state. But my recommendation is to stop shipping it in the Ubuntu packaging until (A) it's more mature or (B) ground control catches up and provides similar functionality so we can drop it.

pitti, 2011-08-11: Moving to p series.
