I have finally got around to spending some time on Grep, and have started by going through the issues in the Savannah tracker and resolving those that are easy to resolve. This includes applying patches that are simple and/or testable and that won't get in the way of applying some of the larger patches that are waiting.

While that is an important issue, my main goal for the short term is to fix as many correctness bugs as can be fixed without making very large (and therefore inherently dangerous) changes. After that, to work on code restructuring etc. which will help us to fix the more difficult bugs.

What I need is for us to review the patches that are already available and decide which ones are ready to apply and which ones are not. I believe that we consider all of the Red Hat patches to be good and ready to apply. Is this right? I am going to start applying them soon.
