You can have a look at the team's PET instance [0]. Particularly the
"With RC bugs" section if you want to have a look at packages with RC bugs,
or the "Newer upstream release available" section, for the packages that
need to be upgraded.

AFAICT there are no RC bugs that reequire immediate action. No need to rush
for upgrades either. You can also decide to start packaging the modules you
would like to see in the archive... it's up to you :)
