Re: Issue  : backport patch
I wanted to submit a shortish patch, basically backported from the
solution for issue 4623 to the 2.3 branch, tested on Linux and
I am not sure about the proper way to submit such a patch, any
Technically, it is just a backport of 2.4's fix for 4623. It has been
tested on both Linux and Solaris 9.
Reviewing this code again, in my opinion this is a feature
enhancement and it has no place in 2.3 which is feature-frozen.
Please reconsider; it is a feature enhancement, but it's one that
matches the text of the docs And the original intent of the docs.
Finer granularity in the divisions between antique/stable/alpha code
would be helpful both to potential contributors and users. Allowing
some feature enhancements into 2.3 after each stable-point seems like
a reasonably mild way to do this; stable-only users will sit tight
until the stable tag is advanced (and probably quite a bit longer,
arg), while many others will be interested in trying these features
long before 2.4 is usable for their sites.
