I'll try to make sure we apply as many of these date-time patches as
possible before the release, but it will be Monday or Tuesday before I get a
chance to work on it.

In the meantime, if anyone with write permission has date-time patches Jeff
has OK'ed stable on trunk, please go ahead and merge them to
branches/release. The release test reporting has started to cycle again.

Thanks for the report!
