    What is the meaning of this sentence?

    "he wants his cabinet secretaries to deal with this by the end of 2008 in terms of the legal maneuvering and what not."

    I don't understand of meaning of the bold part. Can anyone tell me what does it mean in that sentence?

    Thanks for your help.

    it means anything relating to the secretaries ability to do the job asked of them. It is a phrase used to cover any eventualities that may arise. It could be replaced with 'etcetera'
