One thing that could be nice to have in the Bugzilla is the Milestone
field (http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/3.4/en/html/milestones.html). It
would also us to triage bugs between the ones that we want to see fixed
in 2009.08, the one in 2009.11, etc.

I'll also be on holidays between 7th to 22th, but with good
connectivity, but probably limited time available. I'd like to say that
I will gather the fixes in a git tree, but I cannot guarantee it.

Thanks again for taking care of getting Buildroot releases out.
