Great list Josh. I pretty much just voted for all of them. 
I’m tempted to share my own list too. I started working my way through every wish. 2hrs in I was on page 6 of 98… that’s 4,900 wishes in total!

It’s unfortunately impossible for the wishlist team to process an umbrella wish… so it’s great that you posted links to the individual wishes which I hope folks will visit and vote on.

I wish project info weren't some abandoned thing. really need to be able to rearrange, add new subsections, etc.

Of course if properties were fully developed so that both property name and field could be used for auto-text in all places, we wouldn't even need project info
