Ideally we ought to do another release at some point. Does anybody
remember how to do one? :-)
There's a target called "nmhdist" in the Makefile (once you've
generated that using the autoconf tools). Ultimately it uses the
string in the file VERSION, IIRC, but I think it's the autoconf tools
which read that in.
I happen to have some spare time, which I could use to work out
whether there are bugs in the bug tracking system which ought to
be fixed, fix them, etc, if these are likely to get into a release...
I think the first step should be to create a 1.3 branch in CVS and then
do the release work on that. There are some changes I've been keeping
to myself because they're a bit too radical to go into the next release,
I think, and if we branched I'd be able to check them into the trunk.
After branching we could generate a 1.3 release candidate. I suggest
the string "1.3-RC1" go into the VERSION file (on the 1.3 branch).
