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

The summary of the 2 sessions is that we'll consider a set of changes to bring the app. indicator closer to the specification. But we will not re-implement a complete power management and system indicator for Maverick.
