Re: this patch to 14295
I hadn't realized the others bugs you mentioned (14006,14208,14210)
weren't in 1.5.2 either.  My preference would be that all of them go
into 1.5.2, but there may be some reason you guys have not to do that
that I am unaware of.  So my preference would be that they all go in.
If that is impossible, then I guess I will have to be content to get
them into 1.6.  When is 1.6 scheduled to come out?

Re: we're all volunteers - I know and I salute you guys for all the work
that you do!  Nonetheless, for those of us who also would like to help
but at a lesser level of commitment than you committers, there needs to
be a better mechanism to get our contributions into the flow.  In this
case, you don't have StarTeam and have no ability to support these
tasks.  I do, and am glad to help, and this amount of time commitment
suits my schedule (although not my wife's!) but these sorts of delays
are an annoyance.  

The systemic mechanisms do not work very well.  Unfortunately, "pitching
a bitch" is more effective.  That is a problem, although a small one in
the scheme of things.

Anyway, thanks, Conor.

OK, committed to 1.6 but please refer to my notes regarding application
to 1.5.2

We're all volunteers :-)
