Nice breakdown in this article.
I have to say, and I don't want to just be blindly pessimistic, but looking at that list I wonder how everyone has come to the conclusion that they're so close to a deal. It seems as though it takes several days just to sort out a single issue. There are five issue left and a couple of them are fairly big. Unless one side is willing to cave in on several things all at once, I don't know if I feel very confident about the "so close" characterization of things given the remaining time left.
