I've been working on getting more of them focused on the maintenance of
CMF:  Andy McKay, Geoff Davis, and Alec Mitchell each have fixes they
want to land as soon as they get cleared for SVN access.

The problem with that approach is that it introduces the risk that
bugfixes never make it back to the underlying product, because nobody
has the incentive (beyond good intentions) to land them.  <span

I learned this morning that the Plone 2.1 RC went out (I am told) with
CMF 1.5.2.  The really crucial fix for them (making the pathwalk in
DirectoryView less painfully slow) only really affects people running
from SVN checkouts;  OTOH, SVN is the only way to get the RC.
