Excellent. We've already received a CLA from you I believe, so I think
everything is cool to begin deciding on what version this might go into.
We have a backlog on features that we are currently evaluating which
version they should go into and, generally, the process/policy by which
those decisions are made. So, be patient, and know we are actively
working towards getting features into the server in a timely fashion.
Manu, I've cc'd you too, since your patch for heap engine blobs is one
of those currently in the waiting pattern as we decide on this policy.
Cheers, and thanks much to you both!
