Just post them to the list. In case I need more input, I will get back to you

There already is a bug tracking system installed, but for now I would prefer
the list (until we have the current compatibility fixes merged in)

I know that the current situation with the AWT is somewhat tedious. But having
to keep all these systems in sync (with a significant amount of code changed
because of the (Swing) compatibilty issues), I'm not yet inclined to submit
patches on a ad hoc basis. We probably will stabilize to this level by end of
