I'm not sure if we want to add new wiz-bang features in a stable release
branch, but I'll leave that decision up to you since it doesn't affect
any of my production apps today.  However others on the list may want to
put a veto on which new features get added to the stable branch.

About applying the new version to CVS, if you could do it yourself then
I would be happier  ;)  Not to mention that you must be better setup
than I am to test this against PostGIS and make sure we don't commit a
broken version to the stable 3.6 branch.

Assuming that you already have a 3.7 source tree:

  cd mapserver
  cvs update -r rel-3.6.0-beta1
  ... apply your patches/fixes, and make sure you test them well
  ... edit HISTORY.TXT to describe the patch/fixes you made
  cvs commit -m "Backported this and this" mappostgis.c HISTORY.TXT

And finally you can restore your source tree to the 3.7 version with
'cvs update -A'

Thanks for helping us to make everyone happy!  :)

  Don't put for tomorrow what you can do today, because if 
      you enjoy it today you can do it again tomorrow.
