No problem. I had previously pointed them out for the the beta, but
apparently I had to push harder.

I'll try emailing them. So far I don't have an email for Sebastian Redl
yet, but I'll see what I can turn up.

I guess that I'll have to hope that these are taken care of for 1.56.0.
It would be great if the BCP fix could make it into this release however
since it doesn't affect the libraries themselves.

At a minimum, if some of them could be listed in the PATCHES section of
the release notes, that would be fine with me.

Thanks for the info, Marshall.
