Depends on how you word them :D

I turned the comments here into:

Key issues for GNOME at the Desktop Summit
The GNOME community will use the opportunity of the Desktop Summit 
gathering to discuss the following 'hot' items in the community:

 * Celebrating GNOME 3.0. 2011 has been a big year for GNOME; the summit 
will be a chance for contributors to congratulate one another on their 

* The future of GNOME 3; how to help the distributions to package GNOME 
3 and ease the overall adoption of its use and development, seeking 
feedback to help with design and architecture? Where will GNOME 3.2 be 
going? What about the talks about GTK 4? Our new Documents interface? 
The GNOME Contacts framework?

 * We will be welcoming our new Executive Director and the new 
Foundation Board!

* GNOME and mobile. With the earlier GNOME Mobile efforts and the work 
on GNOME Shell as well as MeeGo, there are plenty of mobile technologies 
in the GNOME community. How do these relate to each other, how can they 
strengthen each other and is there more collaboration possible?

* Improving collaboration within the GNOME community.There are many 
brilliant people involved in GNOME and there are many opportunities to 
employ there skills in other and better ways. An example would be 
makeing better use of the interaction knowledge and user interface 
design skills we have.

* Collaboration with other communities and our corporate partners is 
also high on the agenda. There is technology shared with the KDE 
community in our lower stack and there is much to be gained in that are. 
But also collaboration with our corporate partners including Canonical, 
Red Hat, SUSE and others is an important point of attention.

Input still welcome but it'll have to come quick, we need to start doing 
the look & feel and printing soon.
