Amendments that have apparently stalled


        The following amendments apparently have stalled. They entered
 their discussion phase over 60 days ago, and the discussion phase is
 only supposed to be a month long.

        Unless the proposer and seconds can demonstrate otherwise,
 these shall be marked rejected. To mark them passed, a proposer or
 secind whould send a message in to the BTS recording the proposer,
 the seconds, and any objections, and mark the bug forwarded (and
 retitled ."[ACCEPTED DD/MM/YYY]...")

        Unfortunately, I have not had time to follow eacdh of the
 threads and determine which of these amendments should really be
 marked accepted.

     #39830: [AMENDMENT 28/10/1999] get rid of undocumented(7) symlinks
      Reported by: roland@spinnaker.de; 260 days old. 

        These seem to be proposals that may or may not have reached
 amendment status (note: the title still says proposaed). The first
 two should then be marked rejected, the last two shall be downgraded
 to wishlist and moved into the proposed are (proposals are retained
 for 6 months, and the last two are only 99 days old.

        These need further investigation, but they don't appear to be
 amendments or proposals. Some are really bugs, I'll be looking at
 those before the next upload.
