Not to mention that the two pages of open "Needs Documentation" issues 
need to be taken care of, so that we can make sure all the changes 
between Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 are documented on the update page in the 
first place. (And that hopefully, all of the issues that needed 
documentation on the update page were marked as such!)

If you want to help with this part of the project, you can go to the 
advanced search page  http://drupal.org/project/issues/search/drupal 
and search for open issues with the issue tag "Needs Documentation", 
for Drupal version 7.x.

Typical task: read through issue queues and patches, and write up a 
paragraph on the Update page that explains what changed between Drupal 
6 and Drupal 7. Or, if you don't have edit privileges on the Update 
page, post in the issue queue for review and someone else with edit 
privs can put it on the update page.
