How much time do you have?

If time is short, then get it together and ship it. You will get it next
round. There it is.

If you have time, then re-write. Identify and prioritize specifically what
needs to be done, what would be great to be done and what would be cool if
there is time. Within each section of the list, prioritize each thing
specifically to be done. Involve customer support if possible to know what
customers are calling about most.

Then figure out how much time each item will take. The resulting matrix will
tell you what you are going to do for this release. And what is going to be
done for the next. That gives you a plan of attack and a strategy for
assaulting it. So to speak.
