I added a "Struts Action 1" filter to list all the open bugs against
SAF1, which comes up with thirty issues. I agree that not all of these
need to be handled by the 1.3.2 release plan, but it would be help to
itemize the open tickets, so that we know what is not being handled
and why.

To me, a Beta means that if it works for more people, we could upgrade
it to GA.

The JIRA issues aside, I could never vote this release to GA since
some of the documentation is already obsolete.

But, that's OK. I'm not the only one with a vote, and no one can veto
a release :)
