I too am a bit disappointed that PRs with included patches occasionally
languish for months with no feedback from those who are in a position to
commit the changes. I can understand needing some time to take a look at
significant changes, but it's rather annoying when trivial one or two
line patches get the same treatment. Usually, if I send off a message to
one of the mailing lists reminding that I have a fix for a particular
bug in the PR database, it'll get committed within a day or two, but I
thought the idea of having the database was so that I wouldn't have to
do stuff like that.

Anyways, I'll mention some of my pet PRs which shouldn't require much
thought, in hopes that they'll get committed: kern/5305, bin/5419.

And I didn't supply a fix for misc/4642, but I would (or at least would
try) if I could! It has to do with the WWW query-pr interface, and I
don't have the source to the PERL script or whatever that does it.
