They are currently going into the 1.6.x nightly tarballs. For example, I just committed some minor fixes last week, and then Ake's fix today (and another long-standing trivial fix) to the 1.6 branch, which automatically triggers a nightly tarball build:

Nah, that was a totally trivial fix. It won't affect the correctness or performance of your Open MPI 1.6.x installation.
