No need to be sorry. I think nsz just wanted to alert you that there
might be serious bugs that should be fixed if you're going to continue
to use a fork. The WHATSNEW file does a pretty good job of summarizing
important fixes in each release and could be used to find patches to
backport. If your fork is pre-1.0, I would follow the 1.0.x series
WHATSNEW file as long as that branch is maintained since you'll have a
lot less non-bugfix items to sift through than with the 1.1.x series
which has lots of new development in addition to bug fixes.
