I think it would be a good idea to get the fix for issue #6046 (browse
is slow after update from ship.2 to update.1 or joyride) in Update.1,
since this particular bug makes Browse virtually unuseable for 3-4
hours after an upgrade from Ship.2.
The changes I made to fontconfig are minimal
and a package (already in koji) has appeared in the joyride builds.
I'll probably request for an approval for inclusion into Update1
(ApprovalForUpdate) by tomorrow evening (IST).
