I know folks are busy (hint, hint) testing and signing 1.6.15, but
just a reminder that 1.5.8 will roll next week. In updating CHANGES
for the release (see r1038163), there is actually some good stuff in
there already. Please also review STATUS, so we can get any more
low-hanging fixes in there. (I didn't see the 'blame -g' memory fix
in CHANGES, but it should go into 1.5.8, imho)
There is also the question of whether a vote for a change on the 1.6.x
branch constitutes a vote on the 1.5.x, but I'll save that bikeshed
for another day. :)
