> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/243426 Fix bug with dependencies of *-rebuild and *-reconfigure
> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/172278 pkg-infra: limit -reconfigure and -rebuild actions
Both treat the same thing!
A "political decision" has to be made on this since it slightly
changes the way some BR commands work.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/172506 [01/11] libgpg-error: add optional nls support
To be dropped, nobody needs it.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/189336 libglib2: Fix midori save file dialog not being rendered
AFAICS, this one is no longer needed.
It fix a glib-2.32 issue, and now we provide the 2.36 version.

Part of some infra cleanup.
Postponed to the next release.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/208804 [6/8] scons: add host-python2-if-needed dependency

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/208806 [8/8] manual: add host python2 dependency section
Still in my stack.
Part of some infra cleanup.
If nobody but me cares about this, then I don't mind dropping them;
I'll keep them locally.

Doc/manual: need review/respin/rebase imho. Can wait for the next release cycle.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/243442 [1/6] package infra: remove CPPFLAGS from CFLAGS
Part of some cleanup I have in my stack and I'd like to do for the next release.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/244409 [1/1] libtirpc: requires toolchain with threads support
Fixes autobuilders, and is the v2 of a patch, including comments from
the 1st submission.

> http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/182233 Depend autotools targets on host-ccache when BR2_CCACHE is enabled.
