I am drawing blanks on bugs today, although I am sure there are some. 

I do think we should have something on how to upgrade for 8.10. Also,
there is a definite problem upgrading system with Intel 8x5 and 9x5
video to Jaunty. It probably should not even be attempted. Some of the
Intel systems will work, of course, but many more will not.

There are also issues with pulse-audio, still, which may not be
resolved until after the final release. Alsa-audio should be okay. 

Are we including the notify-osd package? I know we did not go with the
upgrade-manager thing, but I don't know about the notification pop-ups.
