Actually I did, even before your message. Do you believe, they use m4?

Deal, say we release on Sunday. I would like a more stable version now,
with less additional functionality and more bug squashing. The only show
stopper thing is packaging that actually works. I think we already have
that now.

Don't stop any additional functionality you are adding, though. We may
release a sligtly out of date CVS version (a day or two before).

I will test compiling and running on:
1. Fedora Core 1 with updated autotools
2. Debian testing (I have it installed on user mode linux).

I think we should make it easier for people to test and submit bug
reports. Bugzilla will help us, even if we only document WONTFIX
