Hi Dalai, even with the small todo's left, its probably worth doing a
first pass review.
I'll go over the branch Monday, Sergey can take a look this week too.

IIRC the policy is not to use tracker for branches, but we could
re-visit that and associate reports with a branch so its not clogging
up the tracker and mixing bugs from master.
