- Worked out an API design for datagrepper with Ian Weller.

- Figured out a mechanism for end users to validate incoming fedmsg
  messages.  Available in fedmsg-0.6.6. 

- Toshio and I brought pkgdb into the fedmsg brood.

- We moved a new release of the /packages webapp to production which
  includes my dogpile cache work.  Those patches got accepted upstream which
  I'm pretty happy about.  It's hitting our memcached servers pretty hard and
  having trouble, which makes me sad.

- I updated fedmsg in our production environment to be using zeromq3's
  TCP_KEEPALIVE features (finally).  We'll see if this solves our message
  dropping problem.

- dgilmore and I talked about hooking koji up to fedmsg.  We have a plan and it
  shouldn't be too much longer.  Getting messages out of koji was the #1
  request I heard at FUDCon.

- Also talked with Dennis about getting fedmsg messages out from secondary arch
  composes and with Seth about getting messages in from coprs/private cloud
  (Kevin mentioned this).

- `Jordan Sissel <http://www.semicomplete.com/>`_ remotely hooked fedmsg up
  to `the logstash demo <http://bit.ly/XwKqY9>`_.
