great!  one of the things i like about org is the close attention to
user-oriented nature of maintenance.  everything on mailing list,
maint branch, compilation warnings few, etc.  this is more of the same
user-oriented goodness.

i have noticed an impressive amount of bug fixing, code improvement,
documentation improvement type of activity recently and it is greatly

it's a kind of user-openness attitude that i think improves the
software.  by analogy, kind of like including science-oriented
research subjects to get knowledge and noticing and priorities instead
of imposing an arbitrary wall.
