It has been decided there will be merges back from .21-fixes to trunk,
probably nightly, until the .21-fixes release.  This will ensure that fixes
are reapplied to trunk but also make it easier to maintain the fixes by
commiting them in only one place.   This also allows for new features to be
added to trunk during this time and not worry about them corrupting the
fixes branch.  Once the release is done, fixes will be applied to trunk and
then merged into -fixes as usual.
