Thanks for your effort to clean up BugZilla!

Just to tell you, what I'm currently working on:
- Last week I started to look into clipping. I realized it requires some
  rearranging of code in the PDF renderer. And understanding the spec in
  this regard is not that simple, either.
- You've probably read my posts about padding on fo:block. Since there
  are some work-arounds (using fo:table), I don't think this needs to be
  fixed in the branch.
- My biggest problem is lack of time. Don't know how to fix that one,
  yet. :-)
