Sorry, I overslept this morning and missed the planning call...(I'll
use two alarms next time).

I have a proposal: it would be better to separate milestones for
statistics and non-statistics related tasks because different and
disjoint sets of developers work on these.  It would be misleading,
e.g., to see 8/10 tasks are closed in the sprint progress bar:

because e.g., it could be possible that all of the 8 completed tasks
are statistics-related and there may have been no progress on the
generic authoritative work.

I understand that separating these may introduce an additional
administration overhead for you.  If this is a concern, I volunteer to
maintain the milestone/progress pages.

This is nice, I wanted to have a storage like this (except that "for
the resolver" should be "for the authoritative server/statistics" :-)

I don't object to the idea, but I'd like to know the specific,
concrete requirement of year-2 optimization (including whether we need
to do anything within year-2 in the first place) as I said in the
"Profiling & performance sugestions".  I'm expecting this information
from Shane.
