I had 2 intentions with this email. 1 was to try getting some flyspray
cleanup happening which I think is very slowly starting....

The other was to get some discussion on how bad things are looking for
the release. One of the reaosns for postponing was becuase we thought
that the current code isnt up to scratch, but to my knowledge there
has been no talk about what needs fixing and what bugs we are happy to
sit on the tracker.

Anyone want to comment?
