As far as I can see, the point releases take quite some co-ordination
between Joey and the ftpmasters, and a lot of work on both
sides. Finding the time to do that seems difficult, as far as I can

If it would help, I'd like to get more involved. I'm already somewhat
involved _after_ the fact of the point releases in the archive, in
doing the new CD and DVD builds. Guys, how can we help you?
