Status of Sarge release issues

I'd like to see a place where the status of all the various places where
potential Sarge release issues are tracked. I feel that
http://www.debian.org/devel/testing was missing things, and I didn't see
anything else like this. Following the debian-devel convention, I created
something myself.

I may not be pointing to the canonical locations. My guesses about
priorities (1-3) of things to be done before Sarge is released is below
with status information. I'm unsure as to where to get status information
about some things in the second paragraph below (which is mainly about
2 Installer TODO:
1 Ports(aka architectures) status:
2 gcc 3.2 (g++ abi change?) transition status (versions with c102 suffix):
2 Release Critical Bugs status: http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/
1 Problems in testing:
2 IPV6 status & status guesses:
2 Debian Description Translation Project (DDTP) status:
3 Status of aptitude categories (Replaces "tags" or keywords ideas, I'd
rather have trove descriptions): http://debian.vitavonni.de/packagebrowser/
3 Menu system update(s)?
http://phys251.phy.olemiss.edu/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/ or
(as suggested in
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2003/debian-devel-200304/msg00800.html )
3 fhs status: http://qa.debian.org/fhs.html
3 AMD x86-64 port? Several threads have been on debian-devel about this.

3 Linux Kernel 2.6?!?
I think that it may be unreasonable to wait for this. There were some
potential Debian Installer (d-i) issues listed in the same thread.
2 Ooo (OpenOffice.org 1.0.3?)? Very desirable but held back by
transitions. More info at least on the debian ooo mailing list, is there a
status site?
2 Perl transition (5.6-5.8)? The debian-perl list might have an up to date
status, is there a status site?
2 KDE (3.1?)? Is there a status site?
2 Postgresql (bugs?, devel site(S)?)?
2 Python transition? It looks to be near completion judging from the
responses to
2 libpng transition? debian-devel has some discussion about this archived
for Jan and Jul 2002. http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2002/debian-devel-200207/msg01106.html is quite interesting.
2 ocaml status?
and bug 187155.
3 gzip rsync patch (patch will be removed or fixed for alphas):
3 QT transition (Qt2->Qt3)? Mentioned in thread
3 MySQL 4 (coming or just uploaded to unstable?)?
3 Gnome: http://people.debian.org/~walters/gnome2.html
3 Java (some packages were in contrib/non-free because they wouldn't work
with free Java implementations. There was some talk about a potential Java
transition but from what to what?)?
3 guile 1.4 -> 1.6 transition?
3 XFree86 status (I suspect sarge'll have 4.2.1, not 4.3.0):

Some other notes:
Boot-floppies status (very likely *has to* be replaced with the
debian-installer): http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/
