Excellent, thanks. 2 questions:

- under VM image store improvements, is this the BD xlator, or are there other things? I'd like to create a description page with some detail
- there's been a lot of work on UFO/gluster-swift - do you know if this will be included? Or will that be released separately on its own schedule?

I think the way we're releasing QA builds is fine - we'll just need to promote them more to the wider community.
