Since 3.2 was released 45 days ago, the active devs have been busy. 
Misc/News in the repository has about about 170 entries for 3.3. At 
least 80% of the changes were also made to 3.1 and 3.2, and most of 
those to 2.7 also. There were perhaps another 10 just for 2.7. So there 
are about 180 unique changes for an average of 4 per day. I suspect the 
average time for each is at least an hour.

When I get up to speed with hg and start contributing again, I will 
spend less time here.
