 - better support for displaying as many languages as possible without 
having to search for corresponding font packages.  From what I can see 
gnome is slightly better than KDE in replacing missing characters, but I 
think both still can't display the http://www.wikipedia.org titlepage with 
all characters.  I think a font metapackage that depends on a set of fonts 
that cover most of unicode would be a great thing.

A new release process that would encourage us to seriously think about the 
next release after (at most) 8 months, so that a release within 15 months 
is realistic.  Ideally without blocking new KDE/Gnome/... releases for 
longer than absolutely necessary.

Is somebody maintaining this list on wiki.d.n or wherever, ideally with 
status updates and pointers to people who will do this?  (Sorry if this is 
already covered, just reading this whole thread now.)

Is etch already unfrozen or is there a grace period for some reason?

I see security.d.o doesn't have etch right now.  Is this just an issue of 
infrastructure not being ready just now or did I misunderstand the idea of 
testing having security support? (IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT This is no 
rant - I'm just trying to understand what's going on IMPORTANT IMPORTANT
