Thanks for the list, I'll look at some of them. Jonathan Riddell says
he prefers to sort out bugs after the Feature Freeze - so let's make
sure we've caught and triaged all of the most annyoing ones so he can
use his superpowers and fix them all in one go :o)
Fun aside, I think it may be worth it to label regression bugs (if you
are 100% sure that it worked in Kubuntu before) with a "regression"
tag and with a "kubuntu" tag so we can search for those two later.
What do you think?

I've been testing hardy alpha2 and 3, I found/verified some bugs which I would consider "high" (not crashing the system, but 99% of the people will be affected by them). The bugs are in launchpad, but I don't see any triaging or so happening.
