I won't pretend to speak for Greg (although I'm not sure he
monitors this list, you may need to contact him directly). However,
the last word I heard from Greg were that he was concentrating all
his work on 4.0-CURRENT, and it didn't sound like anything was likely
to get back-ported to -STABLE.
That said, mirroring under -STABLE should be pretty rock-solid,
and if you can show him a case where it bombs, I would assume that he
would be inclined to try to work out the bug and the fix for it,
which should then get incorporated into future versions of -STABLE.
These are my opinions and should not be taken as official Skynet policy
