I suppose that's pretty much the roadmap there, most likely rougher than you 
ment. New bugs appear all the time some more critical than others. At some 
point close to a release we do have a short list of bugs that must be fixed 
before the release. I suppose that list could be public as well.

Using "cvs log" will give you better results. If you grep with '#' you should 
even get the bug IDs although not all bug fixes include the bug number 
prefixed with '#'. In such cases there will be at least some description of 
the changes. Would be nice if mantis would allow us to tag things fixed in 
several versions (could be it already is I just never have tried to select 
two versions in the 'fixed in' drop down box).
