I had a look at these bugs, and it seems there are much more of those
that can be possibly closed with the latest release. Did you have time
to make a comprehensive BTS scan so far or it was just a driveby?

What immediately comes to my mind for instance is that I had plans to
upstream the icons and some other things, like mc.ext modifications...

As I noted in one of the bug reports:

FYI I used to maintain a bug scratch-pad to collect information about
the bugs to be closed upon next upload here:


which may be of use for you if you ever decide to embark upon the long
overdue BTS cleanup.

andrey joukov -> Andrey Joukov 
the University of Minnesota -> The University of Minnesota

P.S. Judging from your e-mail you must be affiliated with FSF. Do you
have direct contacts with mc upstream for that matter?

There used to be a discussion which didn't really resolve into anything
with respect to the current legal status of mc and your involvement
could have probably been of help.

Keep up good work,

Sincerely yours,
