GNOME 3.6 Blocker Report (T-16d)

Hello all,

We are now well frozen, it's more than time for a new blocker report;
have a look at the list below and do note the list below is not
necessarily complete.

Feedback, updates, help from packagers, developers, maintainers,
contributors, etc. is welcome. Please do speak up if some important
bugs are not listed here, or if some tickets should not be blockers.

Note: This list also includes open reports that still have a 3.4 target.
