Sort of, take a gander at the attachment. I used to keep a "jobs" list
that sat somewhere in my home directory, so I just updated it for a bit
(boring plane ride)

They're just outta fedora-devel-list, there's probably more at fedora-
test-list (which I haven't caught up to yet), and most certainly, this
should just enter the wiki at

Fedora Core 4 wishes
(grep for inclusion, to see new package requests)

* Better ACPI support for laptops
	- battery applet still wanting to use APM to suspend laptop
	- aim to close laptop lid and have it just suspend (and wake up)

* NetworkManager has UI problems, and bugs (with Orinoco cards?)

* ibmonitor inclusion - in Fedora Extras already - http://ibmonitor.sourceforge.net

* Update apps to remove the GtkDeprecationWarning in gtk.mainloop

* Update apps to remove SCSI ioctl, use SG_IO instead

* Main distro down to 1 or 2 discs - its growing too much

* Better firewall configuration tool

* Anaconda "advanced" menu for experienced users so there's more package selection. 

* Tell everyone old X Font server won't be shipped in FC5

* Tomcat inclusion. Eclipse inclusion, integrated w/Tomcat

* Working Evolution NNTP support - we might just need an FC3 update

* Elektra support - http://elektra.sourceforge.net

* Graphical shut down - or just shut it down immediately after log out

* Each user having individual language support (i.e. on the fly) - is this not solved via LANG= ? or even GDM - a GUI tool

* ip conntrack handle ipv6

* ipv6 enabled squid

-- and then the older.... --

Fedora Core 2 (unfulfilled) wishes

* Groupware software - OpenGroupware

* speedtch kernel module, i.e. w/pppd supporting plugins

* a miniconda (small anaconda) for smallish installs. Looking at 'cinch' a floppy-based installer (written for caosity), uses yum for installs

* User Mode Linux inclusion, to test future FC releases (easier)

* qemu (as opposed to anaconda installing in a large chroot)

* Backup tool available in menu (allowing incremental backups, even to external disks)

* GUI for editing RPM sources (for yum/apt/up2date)

* For people with a home network, easy GUI setup so that RPMs are downloaded only once

* Alan's quick list (some irrelvant/fixed removed)

        -       Fix the translations process to avoid the FC1 menu fiasco
        -       Fix or drop apps that just dont work in FC1. If they dont
                work and nobody fixed them then there isnt any point
                continuing to ship them (eg the terminal server client)
        -       Opengroupware IFF there is a calendaring solution for
                evolution and it by then
        -       Get the extras framework sorted and consign lots of the
                old 'small userbase pet program' stuff to it (eg joe)
        -       Font coverage for missing fonts where possible
        -       Make metacity actually work properly if we are going to
                ship it.

* Shorewall (for firewalls) inclusion - in fedora.us

* Yum front-end

* ipw2100/2200 wireless support

	The firmware is indeed not redistributable, but SuSE managed to make
	set-up almost trivial in 9.1 by including the kernel module but then
	requiring their users to download the firmware themselves.

* mscorefonts inclusion - corefonts.sf.net
