The life of the 2.3 branch is as long as the life of the 2.2 branch. That's 
far from short.

Bill and myself are the two developers that spent the most time on these new 
tools. We have both been on holidays for the past 3 weeks. Don't come to 
conclusions so fast.

Further, your bug reports are very nice, but I'm afraid you're being 
counter-productive with your mails. We are not working for you, and the fact 
that you purposedly use a development version for your production work will 
not make us fix anything faster - quite the contrary, your mail subject lines 
tend to drive me away.

Maybe you should try to join the developers IRC channel to get started, now 
that we are both back. We wouldn't mind a helping hand on these tools.
