here's a start for a "What's missing for the release" thread.

I'm only listing what comes to mind.  I don't mean to make an assessment
or push anything.  I'd just like to discuss where we are.  Please add
missing points.

- Order of calling DLL dtors functions per
  Must have in 1.7.1?

- Fifo regression per http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2009-07/msg00233.html
  Need to fix for 1.7.1?

- WCONTINUED/WIFCONTINUED.  Feature request.  Easy to add?  Can wait?

- Red Hat has an open customer request for a small change.  I'll
  discuss this on this list as soon as the NDA is lifted.  Is a
  "would be nice" for 1.7.1 but can wait for 1.7.2 if we want to push
  1.7.1 out.

- Make sure new docs don't point to 1.7 subdir anymore.  Then replace
  old docs with new docs on cygwin.com.

- Decouple release-2 area from release.

- Rename setup-1.7.exe to setup.exe.
