How far is DRUPAL-4-6 maintained?
(Disclaimer: I use 4.7 for all my sites, so I have no specific interest in
I am asking because I noticed a few things and I am curious. I don't imply
anything (especially, I am not blaming anyone for anything!).
we have 5 critical bugs relevant to the 4-6 branch only (those critical issues
have been fixed for 4.7 and cvs).
3 out of 5 have a patch already.
we have altogether only 6 RTBC patches, which shows that the four
core-commiters are doing their jobs :)
What I notice, though is that 3 of them are patches for the 4-6 branch that
have been sitting there for weeks.
My guess is that they went below the commiters' radar because they are not cvs
or 4.7 patches (but I may be wrong).
Lastly, what is the policy for bugs that have been fixed in 4.7 and cvs but
not in 4.6?

Above, I said that Dries, Steve, Killes and Drumm are doing their job
magnificently because there are only 6 RTBC patches.
We cannot say the same of myself and the rest of the community:
There are 246 issues with a patch needing review. Often a proper review is
what is missing to make those RTBC.

Because we and the world need to change.
Intimate Relationships, peace and harmony in the couple.
