Nothing really. Occasionally something get put on high priority, but it is
of little meaning - as those who need to know, know anyway. Patch
inclusion is dictated far more by this newsgroup and the irc
channel. Unless you plan to be a "core dev" (as in core of programmers,
not core of the OS) just ignore it ;)

Generally, each patch will say, if relevant.
Remember that there is ONE source code which spews out ALL firmwares
(pending your "configure" options) so something like "language file
synched" is for all units ..."mp3 decoder added" is not relevant for
recorders with a hardware-MP3-decoder ..."new simulator options" will not
be for any unit, but for the PC-Simulator.


You're welcome ;)
