One more I forgot:

c. In stable/ subdir: The freetds-patched.tgz symlink points to an old
snapshot from the Branch-0_91 branch as of Jun 24 2012 (it contanins a
freetds-0.91.dev.20120624/ tree). It'd great if it pointed to a
tarball of the actual tip of such branch.

I see now there has been already work on this
