Updates since last meeting (on Tuesday, March 15, 2016):

Scrolling (skobes)
- Working on patch to fix absolute positoined scroll anchors within
  static positioned scrollers which is an interesting edge case.
- Smooth scrolling and scroll anchoring interaction is a bit problematic
  and needs some work given the absolute scroll offsets that update
- Work on speeding up smooth scrolling in response to user feedback.

CSS Flexbox (cbiesinger)
- Fixed percentage sizing, the last remaining major task.
- Almost all of the scrolling regressions (again!) still one case
  remaining that needs more investigation.

CSS Grid Layout (svillar, jfernandez, rego, javif) []
- eae/svillar trying to figure out what would be required to ship CSS Grid.

CSS Multi-column (mstensho) []
- The past weeks I've been working on the break-{after,before,inside}
  properties. Mostly some preparatory patches so far, while I've kept
  the beefy parts to myself for now.
- Also: continued cleaning up and untangled multicol stuff in
  mapLocalToAncestor() and friends, which made it super-easy to fix some
  a hot PaintLayer clipping bug afterwards.

- Next up is generating new CSS images for the paint API. (ikilpatrick)

Add API for layout (leviw, pilgrim, dgrogan) []

  block layout API, will be one of the largest leaf nodes ion the new
  layout API. (pilgrim)

LayoutNG []
- LayoutNG hackathon last week. It happened and was glorious. We got of
