I'm not going to merge them, because I don't know how, and don't have the energy to attempt to learn how to do so, given the zillion other things I'm trying to do right now. I proposed a list of commits to backport for 2.4.3 back in December. You've merged those now; thank you, but it's now 4 months later. I don't want another 4 months to go by before we bring the other critical fixes we've already committed to master to our users. The use of MacPorts git and svn on older systems spring to mind as pretty important fixes for older systems. > The decision whether to merge them or not would be by Joshua now, as he > is going to tag the release.
