Don't bother. Our "policy" (actually, something I decided a few months
ago when I noticed src/CHANGES was rather large, and no one
complained) is to not update src/CHANGES for major releases (e.g.,
1.3b1), only for minor ones (.e.g, 1.2.1, 1.3b2).

Why can't we just release a 1.2.1 that's different from the 1.2.1-dev
we test? Or do you mean a public test?

Well, some of them are already in HEAD. I say put them all in HEAD,
then put them all in 1.2.X. Whichever way, please put the patches into
both branches separately. Otherwise, six months from now, someone will
be going through the cvs logs trying to find a patch, and will find
just a big entry with a log that says "Fixes from 1.2.1." That person
will be annoyed at us :)

But I vote for you to commit them all to 1.2.x and make sure CHANGES
is properly updated, etc... It's less confusing if one person does it.

We don't have to release it at all. Though I think we should. But we
should get these patches into 1.2.1-dev in case we have to release a
1.2.1 immediately or some reason.

This one's already in HEAD too. Maybe some of the others too, but I
happen to know this one, because it's my patch :)
