Just moved GnomeGoals/PythonIntrospectionPorting to done, as all GNOME
modules depend on pygobject now.

Not sure about this, Its difficult to know if all the modules has been
already fixed

Could you mention the controversial items?

Agree with those, Id like to add some more for some time:

- GnomeGoals/PortToGDBus: Port to GDBus from dbus-glib A lot of
modules have been already ported, see tracker bug [1]. Only wirte a
wiki page for the goal is needed.
- GnomeGoals/NewDocumentationInfraestructure: [2] We currently have
modules that use the old gnome-doc-utils and others that are using the
new yelp-tools. Try to fix this. Tha patches are trivial so Its easy
to achieve
- GnomeGoals/PortToGStreamer1: We already anounced that this will be
the version supported and used in GNOME 3.6
