Thanks for asking! :)
I'm not keeping particularly close track myself.

I don't think it's fixed, but on the other hand I don't think
anything more is going to happen with it.

Feel free to do that if you think it will help.
I think using severity in this way was a bit of a quick-and-dirty hack.
Maybe a usertag would have been better.

And most people's I think. That's why these are long-term issues that
don't see much progress. It seems far too late to make any changes
related to GnuTLS for this release anyway. But nevertheless they remain
important issues (which is why using severity in this way is not great).

Of the important ones, the only ones I would like to see fixed are:


Neither is truly important, and both could be left unfixed at no great
loss for 24.4, but I think someone should at least have a go...

If there are other issues people would like to draw attention to, they
should do so here I guess.

This release is really dragging...
