I could see going either way on this, either:

a) Doing an as-early-as-possible CommitFest to knock off easy items
that have been waiting a while, and having the *second* Fest be the
one where we expect all the large, controversial items to get added
(e.g. - stuff like hot standby, SEPostgreSQL), or

b) Focusing on the likely-hard ones (hot standby, SE PostgreSQL)
first, and deferring others to Fest #2.
