There are too many. Build bugs should be fixed and anything that impairs the
functioning of whole packages. Incorporating patches already submitted would be
the next priority. Fixing isolated little bugs can be pushed back.

You're much too modest. That was hardly "a few bugs." You've been a great help.
Thank you.
