Ok, seems like we are converging; we can continue talking. I've  
created the branch to get the ball rolling.

I'm afraid that the svn log of the branch from github Y! branch is  
fairly useless since a single JIRA might have multiple commits in the  
Y! branch (bugfix on top of a bugfix). We have done that in several  
cases (but the patches committed to trunk have a single patch which is  
the result of forward porting a complete feature/bugfix). IAC the this  
branch and 0.22 have diverged so much that almost no non-trivial patch  
would apply without a significant amount of work.

Thus, I think a jumbo patch should suffice. It will also ensure this  
can done quickly so that the community can then concentrate on 0.22  
and beyond.

However, I will (manually) ensure all relevant jiras are referenced in  
the CHANGES.txt and Release Notes for folks to see the contents of the  
release. This is the hardest part of the exercise. Also, this ensures  
that we can track these jiras for 0.22 as Eli suggested.

Does that seem like a reasonable way forward? I'm happy to brainstorm.
