Oh, absolutely.  The transcripts from the Flock talks that had them (see
https://lwn.net/Articles/563213/) were awesome, but summaries are even

of a post here (and maybe a wiki page update).

The big parts don't need to be done all at once. (Some of them might not
need to be done at all.) Careful is good.
