That is what i meant. It is a continual job.
Yesterday i found a couple of new ones that had
crept into the unscheduled list, e.g.
FOR-854 - The "tigris" skin...

I agree.

What i meant was that the next stage, beyond this, is
for the project as a group to review the list and either
fix issues or move them to be scheduled for 0.9-dev.
This is one of the "roles" that i recently identified.
Someone, not necessarily the Release Manager and not even
necessarily a committer, needs to start an email thread
with the current scheduled list of issues, and get us to
decide on each issue.

We have an unfinished thread about the Jira review process
which needs to be documented so that we don't keep
going in circles.
