http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Power_management and its links at the top 
*should* be that document :-)

Besides the technical details, there are
1. The requests from deployments for the feature:
2. The feature for tracking purposes, currently:
3. The blueprint/plan to implement the feature;
    Mr. Ball's fine plan of attack belongs in this last one.
    Maybe http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Longer_battery_life that Kim Quirk 
created in October?

I think Greg Smith's continuing work on 9.1.0 features and requirements
