Whiteboard

The UDS session log is at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopExperienceTeam/MaverickUDSLog#dx-m-indicator-messages and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopExperienceTeam/MaverickUDSLog#DX / Desktop Roundtable

The general idea is that we do minor changes to the messaging menu and work mostly on ensuring its adoption by more projects.
