Let it sit for now.  We get email notifications when new patches come in.
Since we are all volunteers it can take a little while before we get to it.

And don't assign it to anyone.  Let us handle that.

These are the questions I have, unanswered (afaict) by the patch

Those docs needs to be overhauled.  I am planning to consolidate into a

Any insight?
