Well, we have to integrate some CWSs. I am interested in gnumake4
since it might help clean some issues in the BSD port. For the rest
I am not sure what is there or how stable it is so I would guess
we should tackle them slowly and leave most of them for "later".

We also have to update some components. Anything with an Apache
tag on it, like Apache Commons or Apache Lucene comes first
because working with other Apache projects is key for our
graduation. Some other components are important but involve a lot
of hard work: It would be really great if someone from ICU would
give a hand too.

The clang port is also rather important and would help the MacOSX

Finally, I think we should continue cleaning/replacing some Category-B
software. For example, carrying an outdated version of Mozilla SeaMonkey
just for addressbook support, is a nonsense.

All in all, I think we should focus on stability and not on features.

Just my $0.02.
