#1500 -- Need public key for mfg-data.
* AI: Jim to talk to Noah/Ivan to understand why we still don't
      have the public keys generated and signing working yet.

Still no real keys.

We have a key format - Noah has code that "documents" the format.
The problem is getting the hash functions installed in the HSM machine.
Noah to supply to wmb the key format, a key, a signature file, and
a signed object.

wmb hobbling along with personally generated key.

#1547 -- Decide frame buffer depth.
* AI: cjb/bernie to performance-test color depth change.

#1396 -- We're waiting on the problem with keyboard repeat events.
* AI: Richard to get us a release firmware with this patched.
The "goto hack" made it in the v24 EC firmware.  We think this
fixes the repeat problem.

#1547 -- Decide frame buffer depth.
* AI: cjb/bernie to performance-test color depth change.

80 fps in 24 bit color, 50 fps in 16-bit color

Need a bit more data

#2184 -- OHM idleness detection isn't working
* AI: jg and cjb to meet and decide what OHM should do for Trial-3,
      mail the result to Richard Hughes and devel at .
+ Spec mailed out, but no final resolution yet.  We need to get
the results into the wiki (AI in progress; not finished).

#2237 -- Need to find the best DCON write combination for power-savings
* AI: Joel to do so and pass on to Andres to implement.
Andres still chasing audio problem.
