Release Critical Bugs List



This is the first post of the release-critical buglist for slink.
This list will be posted at least every week. Please note the scripts
that generate this post currently do not yet support comments for
bugs. I hope to add this this week. Of course that should not stop
anyone from fixing these bugs...

Wichert.
