I said any significant amount would make 3.0, not that we had to do all that
for 3.0..  I think release goals are a bad idea.  Those are things I'd like
to see in Debian when they're ready.  I don't speak for Debian, so I don't
even call these Debian goals.  It's my hope, however, that the rest of
Debian agrees that these are good goals.
