Actually there was no definite date agreed on. I indicated I wasn't able
to do the Oct date you asked about and as it turned out the next 2
weekends also didn't work out for me. This weekend, however, I do have
free time to do a release and would be happy to prepare it. I'll try to
get the tarball ready on Sat so other maintainers can download and
compile for their distro's (barring any last min difficulties). Please
try to have any changes you want into the 1.8 tree tomorrow (Fri 14th).
I also need someone to volunteer making RPM's, I don't have a current
RedHat install and am not intending to update my 7.3 install to a newer
version of RH/Fedora.
