Sounds good

Yes, or into the commits itself, so there is no real "bugfix" commit, 
but these fixes are merged into the different commits, the mechanics

Yes, Deadline for this (and other patches from 'pu' will be next 
Wednesday, so the 30th of November.

There will be a R15A tag pushed to github later today. And I would like 
you to rebase your branch upon that, there is some minor merge conflicts.
Then I will refetch your branch tomorrow.
