Ok so I have my list of questions for SHR people. Please feel free to add
questions and if you know  answers please answer!  (I know a most of the
answers are on the two wikis. I am just trying to consolidate and update
them so we can easily write about SHR :) I am hoping the consolidated
answers will be moved to a wiki page soon
