since we are close to the 1.6 release, and entering feature freeze
after this week, reviewing patches and fixing bugs would be most
welcome. I expect me personally will not have time to look through the
bugzilla as I will be overwhelmed by review tasks with the time I can

If the last comment in a report is a few weeks old, it would be useful
to re-test and post a +1 in the bug report if it still happens.
Hopefully you'd find some that we can already close.
