Hi All,

Okay another attempt at a status 2.2 email. I'm going to try and keep
this updated.

  - BT even more less appendixy (grading queue, slots (multiple open/due))
  - presentation layer separation work

  - groups sectionesque (user can belong to multiple groups, normal PARM etc
                         limitations that apply to sections also apply to all
                         groups user belongs too, basically it's
                         like a user has multiple sections)

  - BT - install condition changes on s*
       - change text Done -> 'Next Item', Stop -> 'Quit Grading',
                     Cancel -> add to regrade
       - support the needed JS & CSS
       - add 'section specific slots'
       - PGRD needs to support display of BT grading history
       - separation of PGRD from 'queue grading'

  - FDBK
      - switch to radio button (so they can only send to a single location)
      - keep the user specified title

In progress:
 St - 'sub course' grouping 
           -  a group has a mini internal
              course associated with it, a sepearete
              discussion area, portfolio area,  chat area, etc.)
               (getting there 
                  - roster funtionality needed
                  - mail needs restrictions
                  - portfolio needs accessor linkages, permission checkings
                  - discusion board creation etc.)
 Ri - instructors can return a file as part of the grading process
        (creation occurs, no ability to see the files yet)
 Ge - track instructor for (PARM change log particularly) 
             (Mostly there, filtering display improvements needed to
              make the screen managable, DOCS tracking is delayed till later)
 Gu - reformulating the <task> xml...
 St - Discussion groups (similar to Angel) where a Group
               really is a course with everything just renamed.
               (Mostly there but needs better support for translated
 Gu - Apache 2 compatibility (more testing needed but really looks close)
 Gu - SSO support
          (issues with cgi-bin and the cascading around with Basic Auth)
 Ge  - implement accessibility changes

Not done but still likely:
 St  - searching portfolio metadata (stu/intsr)
        - portfolio access controls
 Gu  - in PGRD (grade an entire sequence) ability to specify the
             CODE that user had seen.
 St  - fine grained cloning choices
 St  - student initiated email based password changing
 Gu? - conditionals - stop punishing the student
 Gu  - BT - TA's need to be prioritized to grade users not in any of 
         their sections
          - don't allow grade of users without a checkout of a BT
          - CSV upload of parameters
 Ge? - FDBK
          - add ability to change the text associated with the general 
            fdbk locations
 Gu - students can see their previous submissions
 Ma - ability to force some roles into the recent roles list
 St - FC5 and SuSE 10.1 install

 - student - roles screen enhancement 
                   (possibly show future? and hide expired?)
 - making it easier to change usernames
 - multiclick image response
 - clicker grant
 - QTI
 - sequences with 'random order' to resources
 - better 'snapshot' of what a student has done in a course 
    (problems done.. posts made.. mails sent... login times...)
 - Lon-capa time in menu mode somehow...
 - simple problem plagerism
 - BT - queue grading should be able to do any queue entry at all
 - better things than Exam Upload perhaps new chunk to GRDS
       for displaying external grading info 
       ( could very well end up delayed)

Decoupled from release schedule:
 - Camtasia training session help files for things that people want
               help for
