Do you have any roadmap or schedule for finishing these?

Probably. It might be good if we discuss how to manage Bugzilla entries
and how to determine blockers for "the next release" in one of our next
meetings. I would expect blockers and target milestones to be used to
aid developers to focus on the most relevant things, but current use
does not seem to help at all in this regard, it rather confuses me.

I don't think there is anything I can do about polishing the Template
and Config stuff since I do not know where to start. All other issues
still seem out of scope for 0.7.0.
