There've been some requests to release Avro version 1.7.7 soon.

I'm happy to create a release candidate next week and call a vote.

marked as "Fix for: 1.7.7" and as "Patch Available".  These each then
need be reviewed and a decision whether to include them in the

Can folks please review "Patch Available" issues and indicate whether
they think it should be committed?  A committer must make the final
decision of whether to commit each change, but reviews by independent
non-committers help considerably.

API changes in 1.7.7 must be back-compatible, and data format changes
must be both back- and forward-compatible.
