Is there a web site that mentions bugs that are scheduled to be fixed
These are my personal *MUST-FIX* and 33670 and perhaps 46866 are "last
chance to fix for the next five years or so" (i. e. before FreeBSD 6
goes -STABLE), they cannot be fixed while FreeBSD 5 is -STABLE.
(ext2fs mount impairs syncher at shutdown, causing super block corruption)
(critical getpwent()-vs-NIS bug)
(data corruption: lseek() not reporting alignment error,
includes patch that address the issue halfways)
(includes trivial and obviously correct patch:
shell flags error for trying to unset a non-existent variable,
standard demands that this operation be successful)
And this is a *SHOULD-FIX*:
(security bug: default inetd configuration allows for
memory exhaustion exploit)
I'm willing to help with these as far as my skills reach.
