[Image-SIG] towards 1.1.7 (code name "raclette")

Looks like some people out there have noticed this little page:
so I might as well announce it to the list - it's finally time for the
1.1.7 "patch catchup" I mentioned last year. The plan is simple: pick
must-have/low-hanging/obviously-correct fixes and patches, add them
all on top of 1.1.6, and cut a new 1.1.7 release. No big overhauls,
no CADT-style rewrites, just plain old boring software maintenance.
The plan is to collect patches/fixes over the next few weeks, and cut
an alpha before the end of the month.
Here's what you can do:
1. Go to the above page and look for your favourite patches. If it's
there, you don't need to do anything now - just keep an eye on this
list and help us with testing when this thing goes alpha.
2. If the patch or fix isn't there, you can:
a) followup on this list - either post a patch or a pointer to
a patch if you have it, or describe the problem.
b) add it to the issue tracker on that site.
c) grab a source snapshot (use the 'download >>' feature) and
prepare a patch; submit it using approach (a) or (b).
d) or, if you're a Mercurial user, clone the repository and work
on a patch, and either submit it as as above, send me a pull
request, or send me a patchbomb (if you don't know what that
is, please don't ;-).
e) for sensitive or bulky stuff (e.g. if the test data needed
to trigger the bug cannot be posted in public), feel free
to contact me off-list.
As usual, I reserve the right to reject/postpone patches that are too
big or complicated or risk breaking old code. I also reserve the
right to remove the above repository when this catchup is done; the
final version will be released through the usual channels.
