(1) The completion of the CSSification. I'd love for the wikipedia look
and feel to be an available skin. My wife and business partner is very
interested in doing a bugzilla skin to fit our new look and feel.
(2) The PerlOO bug interface filled out and documented. This may already
have happened to some degree, but I haven't looked lately. (Is this still
(3) All database tables to have primary keys. The lack of this is really
laughable and sad. I've been slack on submitting patches because of lack
of time and the accumulated frustrations of explaining simple database
concepts to people that "should know", but since there's a break this
weekend between the end of the World of Warcraft (WoW) beta and the
release next week I'm trying to clean up my list of little tasks.** Now
that I've publicly committed to this it'll provide me a bit more
motivation to get over the hump of frustration.
(4) Time tracking. The last time I looked at the patch it seemed like a
work still in progress, but that was months ago.

** WoW is going to be the biggest MMORPG ever. It totally smokes every
other MMORPG we've ever played. 500,000 people signed up just for the
beta. I've played extensively Anarchy Online, Star Wars Galaxies, and
Final Fantasy XI. I've seen Eve Online, City of Heroes, Dark Ages of
Camelot and a few less memorable massively multiplayer games being played.
All had major frustrations, but WoW seems well thought out and well
implemented. If you sign up, drop me a note and I'll let you know what
server we're on. There's no list of the release servers yet so we haven't
picked one yet.
