Subject Re: merging branch TEZ-2003 to master
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 20:30:41 GMT
There's been a bunch of reviews on the branch, and suggestions/issues
either addressed / answered / deferred (The last of the current set is in
progress but should be done soon).
Thanks folks for the reviews. I'll call a vote early next week for merging
in the changes.
