I have one bug I'd like to mention so it is not forgotten, about the
shortcut code in libxfce4ui I reported here:

There seems to be other bugs about shortcuts with the super key to be
found in the bug tracker, but I haven't looked at them. Not sure if
someone else would consider this critical, but it's in one of
the core packages, which should be stable. Additionally, it's a
regression, pretty annoying and means loss of functionality (for
someone who launches most apps with key shortcuts).

In general, I agree a new list of release-critical bugs or some sort
of "road-map" would be a good idea. Looking at the bug tracker, you'll
miss the forest for the trees.
