1. Deconf todo list
This is a quick ToDo list for debconf 7. It is not complete, and feel free to add stuff. Try and put things in time followed by importance order, so if A has to be done now, it goes before B which can wait ten months. Inside that, If C is more important than D, C goes before D.
For dates, D refers to the start of debconf. So D-3 months says that it has to be done three months before the start.
Now means it should be done now, but this should only be used for small things. ASAP means we should be working on this, but no deadline is known.
