Hi Eric,

Not only do we move them, we actually do look at/apply at the
submitted patches as well - though again, we aren't always as
efficient as we like.

Right now, patches that are GTK+ 1.3 material are not getting a lot of
attention, mainly because most developer attention is going into a)
maintenance of 1.2.x.  b) thinking about "big picture" changes for
1.3. But we'll try not to let them languish too long.

For patches that fix specific bugs in 1.2.x, it's probably a
good idea to file a report in the bug tracker (see the GTK+ README)
that points to the patch. That way, there is more of
a constant irritant to remind us about it.

It wouldn't be a horrible idea to file "Wishlist" priority bugs
for patches that add new features as well. But that is
distinctly optional.
