Problems only get fixed as fast as people knowledgeable about the
situation contribute patches.  When it comes to m4 issues, I'm an expert,
but when it comes to ObjC or Fortran, I rely heavily on outside contributors.

Releasing known bugs is not the end of the world, particularly if they are
longstanding issues rather than recent regressions introduced by the
previous release.  On the other hand, fixing known bugs is always nice,
and if we can quickly fix the issue, it would certainly be nice to get the
fix in sooner than later.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
