Thanks for your reply Mark. I know how OSS projects work. I was just hoping 
that this issue, being rather small in fix-scope and large in impact-scope 
would be picked up for the next release. I know also that  you're not the 
person usually maintaining the Connectors so I appreciate the new release (with 
or without our issue).

Please let me know if I can help in any way with our particular issue to get it 
in the upcoming releases...

Best Regards,

As with all ASF projects, committers work on projects when they want to and 
when they have time to.

At the moment, I'm working on a 1.2.41 release (as you can see from the dev 
list activity over the last 24 hours).

"svn log" shows what activity there has been (nothing since March until I 
started the 1.2.41 release).

It isn't going to get into 1.2.41 now it has been tagged and the release vote 
has started but I'll take a look for the next release. Keep in mind my C skills 
are basic to say the least so I might have to pass on this if I can't convince 
myself that the patch is OK.

Do that several times, become a committer and you can do the release yourself
