   UX guidelines:
   Bugs for waterline notifications coming soon.
   [dclarke] Compatibility Test Suite integration into gaia builds ?
   [jsmith] Gaia::System Bugzilla Component - Breaking It Down for Allow for Easier Functional Team Tracking
   [jsmith] 1.2 Regression Blocker Nominations & Blockers - (103 in total, 73 nominations, 30 blockers) - Can we get traction on these?
   [djf] Build-time configuration: is anyone working on this? Can we figure out a consistent solution?
   keyboard layouts, autocorrect
   video default size
   dpi, etc
   current approach is settings, which affects startup time
   [djf] Front-end Latin keyboard work for 1.3: talk to djf if you want to get involved

   [djvj] I'm blocked on 919006 on Unagi and Inari devices.  Email doesn't start, so I can't work on 915223. <-- This was caused by the gecko bug that closed the tree [and is now fixed]
