I'm going to keep scratching my own itches, that's probably about all
I'll have time for this year. First on the list is migrating buildbot
to the asf infra, then continuing the work on ra_serf to make it
release-ready (I dare not to say that'll be 1.7 though).

Then, while using darcs for a while on a small project I started to
like the 'darcs record' feature, and more specifically the interactive
way of managing local chunks of changes. This is the sort of thing I
miss when working with svn right now, thinks like reverting hunks,
saving them to a patch file (instead of manually editing a patch
file), naming them (and committing them) would speed up my workflow a
lot in some cases.

And if I don't find time for any of this, I'll just look in the issue
tracker from time to time, write some tests and/or fix some issues.
