Of course, quickly finding bugs is especially important given the

That all makes sense to me. We want to get to a free state as quickly as possible, so it's logical to look at the more suspicious parts first.

It'd be nice to finish off the Kernel. While we've completed sound+drivers, which is where I'd expect the vast majority of the non-free stuff to be,  there's still a few thousand files to be checked and we've been caught by suprise before.

Checking external BTS is a good idea from a tactical standpoint, but strageically we need to do the full check of kernel/main/universe to be sure we're free.
