 <li> review the past 2 years of progress

 <li> discuss core designs (towards OpenVAS 3.0)
-     <li> OIDs: final layout and assignment procedure
-     <li> how to get rid of the opevas-plugins module
-     <li> replace the current internationalization concepts
+     <li> Topic 1.1: tighter nmap integration (service detection, OS detection,
+          network discovery, network scans in contrast to host-based scans
+          and seamless integration of NSE scripts). Also relates to CR#26.
+     <li> Topic 1.2: How to establish scan tasks like "all Windows machines in this network".
+     <li> Topic 1.3: CR#23 and CR#24 and OIDs: Agree on standard family names and on subdirectory structures.
+          Final layout and assignment procedure
+     <li> Topic 2.1: New concept of scanner/manager separation (many consequences like
+          retiring OTP for client, having manager mandatory, ...). Big picture(?)
+     <li> Topic 2.2: list of internal stuff we want to get rid of (like arglists, hash
+          functions, use ini-file format). E.g. What can be replaced by glib functionality.
+     <li> Topic 2.3: New base data structures for cleaner objects, APIs etc. (e.g. "struct NVT {}")
+     <li> Topic 2.4: Reorganising openvas-libraries: to have a lightweight core and perhaps other
+          focused libraries to suffice needs of client, manager, etc.
+          Also includes reorganising OpenVAS-Client: Making dependency on
+          openvas-libraries could reduce code base a lot.
+     <li> Topic 3.1: Getting rid of NASL-based SSH stuff in favour of openssh(?)
+     <li> Topic 3.3: Replace the current internationalization concepts
           in nasl/server with a solution by standard technologies
