FWIW, some bugs I can think of that really really need to be fixed before
1.3 are the one with mail needing /var/mail to be writeable (PR 3063), and
the one with routed being generally weird ever since it got upgraded many
months ago. I thought there was a PR open on that one, but I don't see it
anywhere... weird. Someone on port-mac68k recently ran across it though:

And while not all that important, I'll mention my PRs #2187 and 3631
again... I'd really like to hear something about patch, at least. If
it's not good enough or something, I'd like to hear about it so I can
work on it some more, instead of having it languish in the database
for another year...

Finally, PR 3436 can be closed... it's been working for quite some
time now.
