No worries.  I'm going to be working for a bit longer, so let me know
if you need anything.  And please keep merging with trunk and pushing,
so I can perhaps tomorrow merge your branch.  If you do all the merges
with trunk back in your branch and you push it, I can then do a pull
and your local commits get registered as such (see the  last changes
to trunk showing Robet's individual changesets, which I merged today).
In fact, I've been mulling today, after all the merge work, a slight
reorganization of how we manage branches  to simplify review and
history handling.  But I'll send that in a separate message in a few
days, after we finish the current burning issues.

Gladly accepted! (the beer, not that you're unpleasang :)
