"This week was extremely busy, with 37 different new patches in the tree, from 16 developers. This week, we also added 4 new contributors. Congratulations to Ash, Ithamar, Ed and Joseph."

"Without question, this week's biggest patch came from Martin, who finally committed list support, originally begun by Luke Jordan. Later in the week, he committed several updates to this patch, which is still under heavy development. However, this is one of the most vital (formerly) missing features in AbiWord, and its addition brings us significantly closer to 1.0. Since getting to 1.0 is AbiWord's primary focus, Martin becomes the first person to win a second patch prize. We offer our congratulations and another $299."

"The other big checkin this week was from Bill Carpenter, who, in a series of patches, provided everything from proper handling of smart quotes to unbreakable cryptogrpahy. Amazingly, these capabilites were provided by the same patch."
