Hi Frank,

Which commits do you think should get backported ?

My general rule of thumb for backporting is: if the patch fixes a bug 
reported by a user in the stable release, then backport it, otherwise 
it's for the next major release.

I don't know if we will do another 2.4.x release. It depends on when we 
plan for 2.6. Until now, nothing has been formally decided yet.
