I have seen quite a few e-mails from the 
contributors in the not-so-distant-past 
which clearly told that they were not
satisifed with our turn around time.  Why
would they even contribute when their systems
were already running with their custom 

Anyway, I am not arguing here - I understand
we can get to the patches only upon our own

Fixing a release date and then looking at the
available patches to meet that date is not better 
than applying existing patches which push for a 
new release.

Don't get me wrong.  I am not imposing on you
in any way.  Forgive me, if I gave that impression.
I just made a request because you had been involved
with the code; that is all...  And I really really
know the huge amount of time you spend on ant-dev, 
ant-user, and jguru, which, frankly, I think you
shouldn't be, lest you burn out :-)
