I looked at my version of Problems (20.1.3), and the only
entry there for calc is for emacs 19.34!

(long time ago!)

QUESTION: These things in Problems -- don't the maintainers
ever *do* those patches?  If not, then *why* not?

And, if someone *does* do it (incorporate the patches
into a version), does the Problems for that version
usually end up reflecting that that "fix" has *already*
been done, or maybe even *remove* that item
from Problems?

What is the usual protocol?

Thanks,

David
