Hi Colin,

Thanks for the detail schedules. Sounds good. I don't have anything else to add.

Let us know the time tomorrow to do the code review.

Hi Cindy,

Thanks so much! Builds seem to be working nicely and surprisingly quickly, too.

Off the top of my head, there are a few next steps for us:

1. Code review of your and Harris' patches (shall we schedule some time tomorrow?)
2. Do a review with the designers to make sure everything is polished (maybe on Wednesday at dev meeting?)
3. Deploy it fully and hook back up the daily build on forge
4. Do around of testing and solicit feedback from our users pre-launch

Anything else you'd add to that list?

It seems to me that the failing tests in IE issue is something we should address separately. It's one that we don't want to leave for too long, but it shouldn't hold up these next steps.
