It's up on the main page. Just posted in the forums, too.

That page is great, and I had forgotten it existed. I was thinking about 
emailing around about issues to focus on. If people have issues they'd 
like us to look at, or if anyone has time to pre-populate the page with 
bugs and solutions like Allan suggests, feel free to edit the page or 
even just send me suggestions directly.
