First, as of the time of this writing the chipin is JUST shy of $7,500. Thanks to everyone who has contributed! This is a fantastic amount of money in a short time, but there's going to be a long way to go!
Some time ago, we formed the Views' Bug Squad and built up a group of people to help out in the Views' issue queue. At first this was a smashing success, and we did a great job of getting the Views' open issues queue down. For awhile.
