I'm still working on getting 'log -g' functioning again. By Monday
afternoon, I hope to either have it working, or at least have a good
feel for what the remaining issues are. I'll send another mail when
I've reached that point.
We should also take a look at the remaining TODO(sd) and TODO(reint)
comments, either fixing them or removing them. Dunno if that needs to
happen before rc-1, though.
As for an RC, a few people have dropped the name, but there's been no
serious discussion, iirc. If folks could download and take a look at
the nightly tarballs that I've been generating, I'd appreciate it.
Those tarballs are being created with the same scripts and dependencies
used to create the distribution tarballs. By looking at the nightlies,
I hope to catch some of the more frequent tarball-rolling errors
(dependency problems, etc.) before we actually start rolling RCs.
