Major Topics for This Week

Blockers - Landing
Since Fx14 is now on mozilla-beta, make sure you ask for Aurora and Beta approvals when needing to uplift patches.
Blockers - Status
We are closely watching and scrubbing the release blocker list. Drivers would like frequent updates (daily would be nice) in the bugs so we know the status.
