Subject Re: A new release? Can I help?

Gav and David,

Forgive me. I don't know either why so many people assume that there's
nobody home at Forrest, and so just advertise the 1.5/1.6 problem, but
after the third or fourth I just assumed that the project was mighty
sleepy. Thus 'residual'. Obviously, I can't be an RM, I'm not a
committer. I'll follow David's breadcrumbs soon.
