No, we can't.  Unless "Splash screen must have a consistent artwork" is
a release goal approved by the release managers, those bugs are not RC.

And personally, I don't think that should be a release goal, as this is
not how Debian works.  Usually, somebody (either the maintainer or
somebody else) does the work and if things are not getting moved
forward, people are nudged.  Making things RC seldom helps.

Interesting.  Let's see how this works out.

Maybe this "enterprise desktop" would rather merit a custom debian
distribution, integrating things like samba, hula etc. into something
nice sounds like out of scope to a regular task to me.
