    • other CRH bug 489958 – unnecessary scrollbars
  • ddahl
    • bug 489897 New WIP patch. Statement.row work in storage. This will make results iteration easier

    • bug 489513 Timing Harness working off of sdwilsh’s examples


  • MDC
    • the migration guide needs history api and dynamic container examples. (dietrich)

      • dynamic containers (MaK77)
        • will do as soon as they are working properly


  • bug 489173 Issue with size of places.sqlite and Google Toolbar
