As discussed in the meeting, here is my personal 
"laundry list" of low-hanging fruit. Note that some of
these are being worked on for F8 anyway.

- enable nss-mdns by default
- clean up emblems in nautilus
- remove obsolete applets
- reconsider default panel config (launchers)
- unlock keyring on login
- use xdg-user-dirs consistently
- disable root login
- get rid of xfs
- get rid of pam_console
- NM by default
- PA by default
- get rid of a bunch of services that we don't need on a
  live cd, like nfs/rpc/autofs
- have a close look at the system-config tools we install
- cleaned up artwork packaging

And here are some larger things:

- rethink installation and updates (see hughsie's 
  recent work)
- desktop background stuff:
   slideshows, channels, per-workspace
- no lvm/raid in livecd installer
- good xrandr 1.2 support
- no root user
- replace init system
- new graphical boot
- composited desktop by default
- rethink user account handling:
   kiosk mode (?), guest accounts
