I wish it were -- but these are informal goals since we decided
not to have release goals after hamm took so long. Actually, this goals
list seems to have grown since I last saw it (X 3.3.5 is news to me).

IMHO not having a set of release goals is a complete disaster --
their must be some things that have to be done for Debian to be ready.
No real project can operate without a set of goals and we
should not expect to be any different.
