ok, great!  I was just discussing the "needs work" aspect with
James because he has an incredibly powerful new computer, so could
you get started with the patch countdown?

In 24 hours or more (after Sat 13:00 UK time), please send a
"PATCHES: 48-hour countdown for..." email.

if you notice any "needs_work" patch that should/could be
"review", then by all means change it -- but sending out the patch
countdowns takes priority.

We certainly want to look for a different platform; that's on the
GOP list.

At the moment, let's blunder forward as usual.  Yes, this means
more work for you, me, and James... but it's only about 15-30
minutes of extra admin overhead each week, and there's bigger fish
to fry in GOP.  I think we'll get around to a GOP discussion about
this stuff in August?
