we couldn't help but notice a slight frustration in your mail ;)

I notice that you do indeed have some patches that has gone a bit stale in
trac. I suggest you join us on the bug squash, typically on monday 13:00
CET in #varnish-hacking on, if you can.

Failing that, you should post them to the -dev mail list and re-post if you
don't hear a reply. I'll skim through the patches in trac by monday, but
I'm not promising anything though.

We usually go through tickets by activity roughly each week. That means
that old and inactive tickets is likely to remain old and inactive. The
best way to get a response is:

1. Join us on IRC, specially #varnish-hacking during bug-washing
2. Keep the ticket alive with updates
3. Post the patches to the varnish-dev list - until you get a reply
4. If all else fail and you still don't get a response, mail phk or myself

Hopefully this helps a bit.

- Kristian
