I plan to release 2009.05-rc1 this coming weekend, so if you have any
new features that you would like to see in the release, NOW is the
time to post them / remind me. After the release candidate I'll only
look at patches fixing problems so we can stabilize the tree for a
release mid May.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
