Updates since last meeting (on Tuesday, February 16th):

Scrolling (skobes)
- Fixed crashes caused by stale LayoutObject pointers in scroll anchor.
- Fixed an old bug in coordinated scrollbar where we hold stale
scrollbar pointers.
- Simplifications in paint layer scrollable area.
- Playing around with scroll anchoring on real world web sites.
- Discovered a new smooth scroll regression.

CSS Flexbox (cbiesinger)
- Finished up the scrolling fixes last week, at least I thought I did.
  szager found another issue relating to nested flexboxes. Not quite
  sure what the correct fix is, will require further work.
- More flexbox release blockers relating to overflow: auto.
- Imported Mozilla flexbox tests, pass the vast majority. One failure is
  paint related and will probably fixed by slimming paint v2 (the
  fundamental composting bug), a few fail due to lack of visibility
  collapse support.
- Struggle with upstreaming tests to w3c continues, synced up with
  fantasi and have a plan to move forward.

CSS Grid Layout (svillar, jfernandez, rego, javif) []
- No update since last week -

CSS Multi-column (mstensho) []
- Multi column properties unprefixed! Congrats! []
- Added partial support for modern breaking properties. Work on these

CSS Houdini (ikilpatrick)
- Successes in splitting up RenderingContext2d, patch out that has an
  LGTM already. Should be ready to land today.
- Started adding dev-tool support to worklets, plan to have it hooked up
  and working at the end of this week.

Add API for layout (leviw, pilgrim, dgrogan) []
- Working on removing the default operator for the Line Layout API.
  Covering gaps in the API where we are relying on implicit conversion.
- Started working on the Block Layout API. Trying to figure out the
  hierarchy, still up in the air. (pilgrim)
- Hope to finish up Line Layout API and add include guard by the end of
  the week. A bit hairier than expected but cautiously optimistic.

CSS Containment (leviw) []
- No update since last week.

Intersection Observer (szager, mpb) []
- Spent most of last week doing spec work for IntersectionObserver.
- This week, I have a few code changes to make so our Intersection
  Observer implementation matches the latest version of the spec.
  After that plan to ramp down work on IO for the time being.  [szager]
