Congratulation for the release. Thank you very much for the inclusion  
of patches and fixes, especially copy_hostent and dlopen on MacOS X.  
The inclusion of eunit into OTP is great news! However, as mentioned  
by Kevin Smith, eunit just doesn't work from OTP because eunit.hrl is  
missing.

I also wish that the following bug fixes and enhancement were  
included, so we wouldn't have to run patched versions on production  
and test servers:

Fix #1
ei_decode_big just doesn't work for half of big nums.
ei_encode_big and ei_x_encode_big are missing.
http://www.erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-bugs/2008-October/001023.html

Fix #2
ei_decode_fun just doesn't work.
http://www.erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-bugs/2008-October/001024.html

Fix #3
calendar:local_time_to_universal_time_dst crashes on FreeBSD with TZ  
set to UTC, and maybe in other conditions.
http://www.erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-bugs/2008-November/001077.html

Enhancement #1
eunit to generate XML reports for easier integration with continuous  
integration toolchains (e.g. maven-erlang).
http://support.process-one.net/browse/EUNIT-13

Would it be possible to have a timeframe for those?

Regards,

Paul
