Re 2.49c release, This is what happened with 2.49b mostly and think it
can be done for 2.49c.
- Apply patches submitted that only apply to 2.4x branch (as long as
they obviously fix problems)
- Backport fixes from 2.5x that are dont also make significant changes
(like modifying DNA or other data structures), have been doing this
and AFAIK 2.4x is up to date with fixes from 2.5.
- keep scons working, other build systems can rot, might not even need touching.

There is no obligation for developers to do this and I dont see this
as being so much work.

After a month or 3 we can evaluate making a release (if the bugs are
fixed in svn why not?), making the release log wont be hard, just need
the builders to be available.

Im ok to update the download page, move files into our download size
and write release logs for this.
