In the admin directory, it seems fairly clear that FOR-RELEASE contains tasks
whose completion are currently considered a prerequisite for a release.  Since
this would not be the case for your proposed file, I suggest that it is called
TODO and placed in the nt directory.
We wanted the w32 issues to be visible since we consider them important. I think that knowing the state of Emacs on w32 might be important to everyone interested in making a good release since whatever we think of w32 it is an important platform for many users. Many of those we are trying to reach are using this platform now (by force or will).
