Scott usually goes through the bug tracker before a release and closes
all bugs, which means applying patches too.  One of the best things you
can do is to get the 1.5 version of the patch onto that bug report and
make sure the bug is open and set to version 1.5 of taglib.  That way
he's likely to see it.

Scott did promise more frequent releases...1.5 was released in
January...time for 1.5.1, Scott?  :-)
