I went through the bugs Scott mentioned in his previous "State of
Update.1" mail and looked for status changes. I also surveyed the Trac
Timeline looking for new gems. To make a long story short, no one has
_reported_ changes to any of these bugs in the past 5 days.


Build to test: update.1-699
Several bugs listed below are already fixed in update.1-700.

Key: ??? - status unknown
     TST - needs to be tested
     BLD - needs to be put into a build
     PKG - pkg needs to be built
     DBG - debugging/diagnosis still needed
     STK - stuck; a decision is needed about how to proceed
     SGN - a signoff is needed
     ESC - canceled or siginificantly reduced in priority
     FIN - successfully finished
     MSG - communication needed

  (boot even if firmware needs update) (in 700)

NB: #6245 and #5422 are marked fixed and are probably fixed in build 700
but I can't tell from the resolution comments whether anyone actually
tested the build.
