Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (May) and intended activity for This Month (June) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for May is included where an entry had been made (it is considered unhelpful to alter this to match what actual activity was :). It is acceptable to change devproj milestones as part of this process, however if you do please indicate that you have done so below, for example by adding a Change of Plan bullet point, so that the meeting is alerted to the changes.

I'm planning on skipping a couple of the milestones/features I thought about looking at: Changes to method locking, and adding nagios monitoring. Neither of which are essential, and the report methods and summary web page I'm working on should allow people who want to automatically monitor their mirrors to do so.
