For the upcoming HP 2012.4.0.0 release I'd like package maintainers to
confirm of which version should go in the release.

I have not received input on the following packages, listed with who I
think the maintainer is (which might be wrong):

   - *cgi* — Anders Kaseorg
   - *html* — Don Stewart
   - *parsec* — Antoine Latter
   - *regex-base*, *regex-compat*, *regex-posix* — Christopher Kuklewicz

If these are your packages, please see the message below and contact me
directly ASAP. If you know these please please ping them gently for me. :-)

If I don't hear from them, I'll use the same version that is in 2012.2.0.0,
which will not be the latest version. (Except for html, so I suppose Don is
off the hook... but I'd still like to hear confirmation!) I will release
the version list on Monday, October 1st.
