1. http://drupal.org/node/35814

In addition (more technical issues):

2. Update the project module to work with the comment.module (rather  
than having its own comment implementation).  This will make it  
easier to maintain and will make it easier to roll out new  
functionality in future (eg. site-wide subscriptions)

3. Work on the mail backend and build a good, all-around subscription  
functionality that we can use on drupal.org (and that we can include  
in core as part of tracker.module?).  Update project.module and  
simplenews.module to use the mail backend.

4. Performance improvements: (i) project issue pages, (ii) the forum  
overview page (?q=forum), and (iii) the CVS log page (?q=cvs) are  
really slow.   (ii) is likely to be a problem for sites with many  
forum (topics).

5. Make sure that the cvs.module can import the current repositories  
so we can fix the database inconsistencies that crept into the  
cvs.module's SQL tables.

6. Improve the code-style checker (and thus the code reports).  Many  
security problems in contributed modules go unnoticed.

7. Test the project.module and the simplenews.module and their  
upgrade path so we can upgrade drupal.org.  Create a Drupal HEAD  
module for http://drupal.org/mailing-lists.
