They all look like bugfixes (rather than new features) so they can go into 
1.5.2, IMHO. I'll take care of that.

I agree completely. My personal priority for Ant, right now, is to get the 
number of bugs and enhancements down significantly. I certainly appreciate 
the help that people such as yourself put in.

I think those mechanisms (BugZilla) are OK. At one point most changes to Ant 
were submitted through [PATCH] mails. These were much harder to keep track 
of than with BugZilla. At least we have a persistent record, now, of the 
changes outstanding. It may take time but we do get to them.
