It is not, but it is a great subject for fundraising, or justification if
you would like OSGeo to help with a code-sprint.

The GeoServer project ended up fixing most of the issues that were
identified. A lot of the earlier projects (like GeoTools) were content to
simply list them as "known problems" in case any interested parties wanted
to volunteer.

At this point I would be very happy if pycsw graduates with known problems
so we can communicate to the other projects in incubation that graduation
should be within easy reach :)

If it helps Cameron feel comfortable the board could ask for a status
report on these kind of issues.
