sure - incrementally.  (as usual, the topic comes up when my queue's full ;-)
right now I'm looking at finishing off the two large global changes (gettext
and HTSprintf), which will take us up to late December.  LP's suggested we
put out 2.8.2 when that's done.

That would work for me, since I've a short term project that'll make me
rather busy for about a month.

(Since I got bogged down in HTSprintf, I didn't get a third bugfixes for
2.8.1 put together - I'll try to get that done early next week so we can
discuss whether to make a 2.8.1rel.3)

I've noticed that - but am not sure that they did finally stabilize.
