Tom and I did some discussion last week while I was in India on the
remaining work items for IPMI overall.  The biggest outstanding item is

someone assigned to enhance that.  Before we can fully start on SELs
there are some backend work items that need to be done, because we do
not currently keep track of state-items like "when did the machine last
boot" which are typically placed into the SEL.

We think the best bet would be to have your team work on a small DCMI
story to get into development.  From there, we can arrange some more
detailed discussions on some of the breakdown of the bigger items,
perhaps becoming involved in the SEL development.  Would this be

A smaller DCMI task that Tom already created is #1855: .  This would be an IPMI
