Subject: Re: CVS Patch merging ...
From: Eric Linenberg (elinenbe_at_umich.edu)
Many of the patches are a work in progress. For instance, the fading
patch, needs some changes that Bjorn suggested, along with a setting
in the settings menu.
I guess what many of the patches are waiting for are approval by the
"head" developers and user input. If the majority of the users want
something, then usually it will happen.

"ffrw: peak meter ->> progress bar", and "One (On) button hold".
