    THIS IS NOT A LIST FOR CHERRY-PICKING!!!!  It is a unculled list of
    potential candidates that _may_ need or want to be cherry-picked, in
    case a particular candidate is
    a) fixing a regression
    b) fixing a problem that will foreseeably cause trouble with near-future
    or our current build systems
    c) fixing a problem or providing a feature that will foreseeably cause
    frequent tension between 2.20 and 2.21 users if not cherry-picked
    d) a definite improvement that does not show potential for causing new
    e) a documentation fix/change matching 2.20 behavior
    a) cherry-picks reasonably painlessly
    b) does not cause significant followup tasks to be also scheduled

    If anybody tries indiscriminately picking that list, I am going to be
    pissed.  The majority of those patches likely has no place in 2.20.

OK, I will not do any cherry-picking.

Is there anything else that can be done to help?
