Now as this is *your* project, AJ, what do you think? Should stable
branch be supported better by AppDB/bugzilla etc? At the moment, 1.0.1
is considered "too old" in some cases. The following quotes are from

Maybe I'm wrong here, but that's what it looks like from current AppDB
and bugzilla status.
