In most cases reposting your query helps to get the attention
of the corresponding maintainers. They might have just trivially
missed your post(s).

Please see the above.

We try to collect the patches that fell on the floor during
the release preparation, but given the amount of traffic on the
list and the sheer volume of issues developers have to deal with
during this period, some times things still slip through.

If it's critical for you that the bug is addressed in the next
release, please consider to be more persistent in getting your
message heard.

The policy is "No regressions".

> Release is going to contain known bugs?

Some, most definitely. Do you know any software that doesn't?
