Hi Michael,

Can we add this to the agenda for todays 8.2.0 meeting?

I want to talk about how we confirm the touchpad will be improved in 
8.2.0 more than reviewing the specific bugs. I made a quick scan through 
the bug list but its not clear to me which will improve the user 
experience and which wont.
