I agree, the release went smoothly, compared to what I remember a year 
back when I was helping out.

Some of the 'would be nice' items I guess are:

* Logical separation of apps/services
- i.e. app2's load really spikes when msgmerge runs (I'm assuming this 
is l10n stuff, why should this have to run on the same server that runs 
the wiki etc, if possible it'd be nice to have a similar setup like 
rel-eng has)
* Better load balancing, I'm assuming 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/Architecture is still 
technically correct, it'd be nice to have the proxy servers randomly 
choosing an App server, is this even possible?
* Something that Debian has as a service to packagers is machines of 
various architectures that can be used for debugging/solving build 
problems, koji scratch builds solve part of the problem, but access to 
the chroot or something like that would be even better, I know people 
offer this sort of setup on a 'by request' basis, but if we retiring 
builders etc in the future, instead of sending them to the graveyard, 
this is an option.

And of course some of the upcoming stuff:
* Mediawiki
* New DB Server for Koji
* Network storage for tarball uploads
* Elections App (expect a call for testers soon)
