Getting very close to that day now. We still need to:

    - finish the branching, tagging, merging code
    - do the various small-scale, useful features that CVS offers,
      such as newline conversion, keyword substitution
    - fix many of the bugs you see in the issue tracker
    - write some more documentation!

However, there's no need for the Debian packaging effort to wait on
all that, it can start right now.

Testing is definitely welcome, it's just that at the moment it's most
helpful for developer-type persons to test, because they're also
likely to submit patches or suggested fixes for the bugs they find.
Large-scale user testing is something we'll be ready for when we're no
longer spending all our time on feature completion.
