The list of bugs with patches, which are not yet applied are
- search for non-voted pics
  (does not involve i18n strings)

- rights issue:
 (does not involve i18n strings)

- goto patch (essentially done ..)
  This *does* involve i18n strings.
  For this reason, and because it is one of the really
  higher rated wishes (>100 !) I would be very happy if it
  could get integrated into 0.9.3.
  There are also a couple of other bugs/wishes, which could
  be addressed if this is applied ...

- goto position on the LHS
  (does not involve i18n strings)

So from my point of view, it would be nice if all the patches
could make it into 0.9.3, but most importantly the goto patch ;-).
Then there are also the patches by Guillaume Castagnino
(can't find the BKO entry right now), and maybe some others...?

Generally I would encourage that patches get a
faster review/apply procedure:
- if too much time passes, the patches don't apply anymore
- if too much time passes, the patch author usually
  will have forgotten about the details, and in case of
  questions it may be difficult to answer them ...
- quick review/apply can be very motivating for further contributions.
(Don't get me wrong: I am not blaming anyone, no bad feelings or so,
and perfectly understand why things are as they are,
just my 2cents ...)

Best wishes,
