What about features that have been submitting patches and trying to get 
included for a few weeks now.

Specificially, I'm concerned with pg_autovacuum backend integration.  I 
know people have been busy frying bigger fish, so the patch probably 
hasn't recieved much review yet, but it was submitted prior to July 1. 
Do you know how that will be handled?

Thanks,

Matthew
