That's really awesome and you're doing a very good job there. The GNOME release
team is better than ever.
But we shouldn't forget about old bugs which haven't been fixed yet.

Fixing bugs in GNOME 2.0 wasn't such a bad idea IMHO. Beside introducing new
cool features in GNOME, reported bugs/issues have to be fixed, too. If it takes
more than 6 months, like 7 - 8 months it's not so bad at all. Software is done
when it's done.
