Yeah, I know.  It's mostly a humdrum incremental release, so he's not
anticipating many problems.

Yes, and tweaking it here and there.

There is also documentation that needs to be updated (the syntax one).
In addition to *.erb, there are a couple of other extensions I've
added to ftdetect as well.  I'm linking a patch (over the list size
limit) against the latest Vim CVS that you can send to Bram if you
want.  It might make things easier for him.
