Intel Adds Support For ARB_copy_image
Phoronix: Intel Adds Support For ARB_copy_image
While OpenGL 4.5 was announced today, Mesa developers are still battling for OpenGL 4.0 compliance but at least they are now able to scratch off another GL4 feature...
Is anyone actually working on the missing GLSL4 and missing shader extensions (tessellation, etc) from 4.0 right now?
There are only three parts left for 4.0:

Dave Airlie is working on GL_ARB_gpu_shader_fp64, and a couple of Intel folks are looking at implementing the i965 backend parts of it.
Chris Forbes has started GL_ARB_shader_subroutine, and Ian Romanick is hoping to take it over.
After that, there's only one more extension for GL 4.1 (GL_ARB_shader_image_load_store), which I believe Francisco Jerez is probably working on.
So yes - it's being worked on :)
Quick assessment on what's easy from 4.5 extensions list?

There was a GSoC project for getting EXT_dsa into mesa, it got pretty far but the student just vanished without a word: https://github.com/nobled/mesa/tree/direct_state_access
