last email, and then i'm going to bed (really, me, i promise!).  i added 
a bugzilla flag called "blocking4.2".  flags have three states: "?", 
"-", and "+".  normal users can set "?" if they'd like to request that a 
bug get the particular flag.   a dev can change the flag to "+" 
(confirm) or "-" (deny).  i'm not exactly sure who has permissions to 
actually confirm or deny flags, so if you need such permission and don't 
have it, give me a holler.

on a side note, can we _please_ have http://bugs.xfce.org/ aliased to 
bugzilla's vhost before we do any kind of release?
