The Mollom module needs to be ready for Drupal 8 at the beginning of its release on November 19.
The module will need to be rewritten using the base user stories and test cases and guidance. The approach of a simple 'going through change requests' is too massive and does not take into account the fact that some portions of the module will need to be re-thought.
Minor - in general we are aiming for parity of API, functionality, and interface with the initial release. Larger changes to functionality, etc. will be made in subsequent releases but the aim for 8.x-1.0 is to simply provide Mollom functionality for Drupal 8. Some minor changes may include
- Retirement of flag as inappropriate
- Possible retirement of form behavior analysis
- Will begin looking at shift to entities only rather than forms (but will not make this change in 8.x-1.0).
Along with Drupal 8 release ;-)

It's not that far off. :) I'm going to take a stab at this. We'll see if that goes anywhere.
