@DMan Nice spot, I'd been following the OpenLayers project on GitHub but didn't realise they had trac as well, that'll be handy! Cheers! – Rob Quincey Jun 26 '12 at 8:24

Btw, I'm just a (very) active user and monitor the timeline ( for updates frequently. I'm not associated with the core OL team. – Vadim Jun 27 '12 at 21:55
