My project so far has gone fairly well, and I'd say I'm currently just a 
little ahead of schedule, which I'm pleased about. The first part of the 
project was to get the Control Panel working in the shell namespace, and it 
turned out that a lot of the work had already been done, it just wasn't 
glued together properly. It took me a little while to figure out what needed 
doing, but I managed to work it out and it made it into Wine 1.1. :-) I'm 
now moving onto developing some new control panel applets, and looking at 
ways to improve winecfg. I've been working on an Add/Remove Programs applet 
for the past week or so, which is now more or less complete, and will likely 
be submitted to wine-patches soon. I'm also thinking about what I'm going to 
do with winecfg, with my thinking that the bits that are not configurable on 
a per-application basis (desktop appearance and sound, mainly) can be moved 
into/reimplemented in new control panels. So that'll be my main focus over 
the next few weeks.

The biggest challenge for me now is probably working out a "work plan", and 
making sure I set targets for myself, to ensure I can try to get as much 
done and use my time efficiently. Other than that, I've learned a lot about 
the general process of Wine development, and have quite enjoyed things so
