Yeah, it's often a matter of opinion what to call a bug and what to call a
missing feature.

Say,  everybody who is looking for issues in the changelog: would there be
a good way to involve you earlier next time? It seems that before I put a
release out is when I need the most feedback, but also when I have to beg
the most to get it.  Maybe I should get a mail out to tor-talk a day or two
*before* the next release, to better make use of this help.

Happy new years,
