Hi there,

up to fairly recently I have reviewed all patches that were applied to 
HEAD if they might be needed for 4.7 too. Due to the large number of 
patches being committed to HEAD that are mostly HEAD specific I won't do 
this anymore.

If you supplied a patch that was applied to HEAD and you think it should 
be committed to 4.7 as well, please recategorize the patch as "ready to 
be committed" for the 4.7 version after it was committed to HEAD.

If you submit a patch for a bug found in 4.7 and HEAD, please file it 
against CVS instead of 4.7. This will ensure it gets more attention.

Finally, there are a number of pending patches, it would be nice if 
people could review/ work on them:
