Sorry to say this but I have to agree with Jeff as to not actually 
having a clue what is being asked to be reviewed.

Before the branch existed, changes had to be made in the trunk.  Perhaps its best if we figure out how to move forward after the draft version is ready.

I still haven't reviewed anything because no one has yet told me specifically what to review.  (or I misunderstood whatever instructions were given)  :-(
