Just to be really clear: I did not suggest a 0.3 release.

But still, it would be nice to have a list for 1.0, so I agree with
you there.  Perhaps even a list for requirement of the releases in the
meanwhile.  Something like:

Version 0.3:

- dhcp
- ext2 (> 2gb)
- console repeater
- fix bugs: foo, bar, baz

Version 0.4:

- console on startup
- console: x switching
- fix pthreadd so firefox works
- fix the gnumach serial driver

Version 0.5:

- posix shared memory
- fix fakeroot


Or perhaps make a list of tasks, assign points to each task (dhcp: 5,
etc) and make a new 0.x release whenever 25 points were added after
the last release.

I do not propose this exact list.  But I think it would be nice, or
even stimulating to have a list of important items.  First of all, we
can release more often.  And I think it would be nice for developers
to see: If I do this and he does that, we will have a new release.

Anyway, what my goal is is not only suggesting things.  I hope one or
more Hurd maintainers will pick up some ideas or even make the list.
Or perhaps I can volunteer to make a list of items with some other
people and let you guys shoot on it and to make it official

What do you think?  I hope it is not too silly? ;)
