Let's check out 0.4.4 release status and open tickets!
Tickets in 0.4.4.x with no owner.
== Reminders ==
* Remember to "/me status: foo" at least once daily.
* Remember that our current code reviews should be done by end-of-week.
* Make sure you are in touch with everybody with whom you are doing work
for the next releases.
* Check other's people call for help in their entries.
