(Resending since my previous attempt did not seem to reach the GPII-UX

The Cloud4all pilot team asked me to check the status of the JIRAs
related to the PMT. While doing this, I noticed that most of these
JIRA's had "Year 3" or "Year 3 Review" as "Fix Version/s". In the
interest of planning the third pilot phase, I have added "Pilot 3" to
the following JIRAs:
(I listed GPII-1029 first because it blocks at least one other pull
request - the one for GPII-1014.)

* GPII-1029: "Adjust PMT/PCP to use the new API provided by GPII
server": <http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-1029>.
  (This ticket did not have "Fix version/s" info.)
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/88>: this
pull request has comments by Justin and Antranig which, in my opinion,
can be handled in a separate JIRA + pull request.
* GPII-1091: "Install and run PMT inside Node js":
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/90>: as far
as I can see, Nikos addressed Justin's comments.
* GPII-1019: "Creation of context condition panel":
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/89>: as far
as I can see, Nikos addressed Justin's comments.
* GPII-803: "Implement Mobile adjusters for C4A":
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/87>: this
pull request has many line notes by Justin and no updates in the code
since these comments were made.
* GPII-1018: "Creation of context set panel":
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/86>: this was
last updated after the review; as far as I can tell from the comments,
the only thing missing is unit tests.
* GPII-1014: "Replace the slider adjuster for cursor size with
plus/minus text field adjuster": <http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-1014>.
  (This ticket did not have "Fix version/s" info.)
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/85>:
according to Justin's last comment, this pull request seems ready but
will need to be tested after pull request
<https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/88> (GPII-1029: new GPII
server API) is merged.
* GPII-1023: "Adjuster auto-adjust":
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/84>: this is
pending until we finalise the discussion about a new "common term" that
enables or disables auto-adjust; see Nikos' mail to the Architecture
list from 19 November:
* GPII-947: "Log-in tab": <http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-947>.
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/81>: last
change (3 November): Nikos added commits in response comments from Justin.
* GPII-729: "NVDA often reads 'application' and we don't know what it
refers to": <http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-729>.
  Pull request: <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/74>: it is
not clear to me whether this pull request has been replaced with or
outdated by <https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/79> (which was
merged into master in September 2014) or not.
* GPII-752: "Add status messages to allow the user to know what's
happening in the system": <http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-752>.
  Pull request (from ASTEA):
<https://github.com/GPII/prefsEditors/pull/71>: the comments contain a
long conversation between Justin and Alex; Alex added his last commits
on 29 September 2014.

If any of the above JIRA tickets are not required for the third pilot
phase, I think that the "Fix version/s" label needs to be changed to
"Year 4" because "Year 3" is already in the past and is therefore not

Nikos, when you go through the pull requests, I would appreciate it if
you added your updates to the pull requests themselves instead of only
sending an e-mail to Kasper. This way, the status information stays
together with the source code instead of in an e-mail that is separate
from the actual pull requests. This would also make it easier for me to
track the status and pass that information on to the SP4 team.
