I'd disagree with the "quite soon". I believe that many people will be
forced to stay with 0.20.5 for at least another 6 months or at least the
time it takes to stabilize FOP Trunk and add the missing features that
work in 0.20.5.

But yes, we should think about cleaning out the bug-list.

I realize that the second option means a lot of work but blindly
following option 1 would mean missing a chance. There are a lot of bug
reports against 0.20.5/maintenance branch that have never been fixed but
are valid issues and must not be lost.

I don't think we have to throw out all those old issues by force within
the next few weeks. I'm sure there is a good number of issues that can
be closed and it's good if they are. But be careful with the ones that
help us improve FOP.

BTW, here's something neat:
