I have inquired about the status of these projects, but some (like the
"simpler_porting" thing) are just not being worded on at all, and even
Zack didn't know the status on the "improve_the_installation_procedure",
so they'll just be sitting there for a while ;-)

Alright, like so?

I also removed the remark about the scheduler because it predates the
DFA model.  The problem with the scheduler is not with the machine
model now but with the scheduler itself, and we have PRs for that.
