And how many of those bugs were introduced after 4.2.6, in 4.2.7*, and
IMO there are different kinds of bug. Some of them can only be fixed in
the next major version, and others are worth to roll out a patch release.
IMO security fixes implemented around last christmas, and evil things
like the sticky leap bit are really worth to roll out a patch release.
This would save many users and admins of really much trouble.
I think we have already discussed this in detail by email back in
December or January.
