Hi Hauke,

I am in the midst of preparing a proposal for the action items to be 
completed for the remerge. Had a long chat with imre and felix this week 
that latest several hours and the proposal is a result of this call. 
I'll post the info early next week. It addresses all the details and my 
hope is that we can use it as a basis for getting the remerge wrapped up 
asap. If you dont mind, please dont post any announcements until after 
my proposal.
