[erlang-patches] What's cooking in erlang/otp (2011-06-21)

During the month of July there will only be afew updates to 'pu' due to
vacations. So do not be alarmed if your patches will be left unattended 
for a few weeks, we will be back in full force in August, and we aim to 
get as much as possible into the R14B04 release.

As the last cooking email was done in a slightly different way, there
may be some redundancy and or inconsistency in this one.
Feel free to let me know if something is missing.
