Also - go through RT. For all bugs that we said "are fixed in blead/
are fixed in maint/will be fixed in 5.8.1"

a: check bug is indeed fixed in 5.8.1
b: check to see if we have a regression test in place for that bug
c: set bug status to fixed in 5.8.1
d: inform the bug's owner that it's now fixed
e: set bug's status to resolved
f: be happy
g: goto a
