    I think that Pnetlib will be the most patched upon and 
the least tested. I think that for now , we have to read it
and patch it.

    Since I'm doing my exams I won't be hacking the runtime.
I can easily spend sometime or so for the patches this weekend.

    The best way is to rely on the cscc to syntax check the 
code and do a mental debug. I think the people with CVS commit
access should start spending some time reviewing patches. 

    I would like Rhys to manage the Runtime and Compiler patches.
The pnetlib patches will most likely be the new classes. I think
pnetlib patches should be OK having minor semantic errors ?.
