OK, here are my thoughts:

1032 New users and groups
  I've had private conversations about this with other devs.  My opinion
is that this is not broken.  Others have philosophical differences.
Mark as wontfix.

1785 Udev Rules need verified for accuracy, completeness, and bloat
  This needs to be done, but won't ever be complete before -testing.
Testing is where the verification will really happen.

1659 Re-evaluate the possible Glibc test failures with the current GCC
and Glibc combinations
  This is a text only change and probably won't change any instructions.
It should be reviewed before -testing, but it doesn't have to be complete.

1765 Update to LFS License
  Waiting on Gerard, but is text only.  Doesn't have to be complete
before -testing.

1789 The SBU and disk usage info need be updated
  Doesn't have to be complete before -testing.

1790 udev rules need documented
  Doesn't have to be complete before -testing.

1791 linux-
  Needs to be done, but is a moving target.  Seems to be moving quite
fast recently.  A freeze decision has to be made sometime.

1656 Redundancy in Chapter 6 "Creating Directories"
  Not a high priority, but seems to be very easy.  I don't understand
why it hasn't been fixed by now.  Fix it today.
