Thanks to efforts by Paul and others, the current list is just this:

17693; desktop-save-mode disables option -nw
17976  24.3; url-retrieve-synchronously doesn't fallback to IPv4
19548  VC changes under-documented, needlessly incompatible
19717  24.4.50; printing.el still uses ps-eval-switch
20247  24.4; Emacs hangs at startup in desktop mode
21182  25.0.50; gnus: every other unread message is marked as read on
21650  24.5; mh-e keeps trying to open urls
21871  Emacs Lisp Mode (at least): spurious parens in column 0 don't get
21874  25.0.50; point-entered no longer works
22107  this-command-keys no longer returns prefix argument
22147  Obsolete search-forward-lax-whitespace
22295  viper-mode undo bug introduced between Nov 10 and Nov 14
22338  25.0.50; deactivate-mark regression
22434  25.0.50; recentf pastes X clipboard upon opening
22795  25.0.91; Can't write read only file on w32
23050  package.el overwrites symlinks when saving "(package-initialize)"
23360  bug fonts display overlap all versions
23519  25.0.93; pasting with the middle mouse button while searching

Here's my suggestions for how to treat these:

  17693 -- patch was proposed, suggest to push and close the bug
  17976 -- missing feature, shouldn't be blocking
  19548 -- not clear what should be done there; shouldn't block
  19717 -- patch was proposed, suggest to push and close
  20247 -- for Emacs 25.1, suggest to default
           desktop-restore-in-current-display to t, and then release the block
  21182 -- not serious enough to block the release
  21650 -- AFAIU is now a n MH-E issue, so shouldn't block the release
  21871 -- not serious enough to block the release
  21874 -- looks like a minor issue to me, certainly not worthy of blocking
  22107 -- less than a minor issue, given the behavior is perceived correct
  22147 -- not serious enough to block the release
  22295 -- solution exists on a branch; suggest to merge it and close
  22338 -- minor issue that happens in rare situations; shouldn't block
  22434 -- sounds serious; could someone please work on this one?
  22795 -- I'm waiting for the OP to present more info
  23050 -- Glenn suggested a solution, I suggest to accept it
  23360 -- I will add a variable to allow to work around the problem
  23519 -- a solution was proposed, so we can solve this

If no one objects, 6 bugs can be solved and closed, 9 should be
removed from the blocking list, 2 I will solve, and 1 (22434) awaits
someone to work and fix.
