Umm, I don't propose to call it anything. I leave that up to the director
of marketing. I'm going to download, build, and test axiom--main--1 on
all the platforms I have available and, if it passes, promote it to 
savannah. Then I need to grab the savannah copy and redo the testing to
ensure I didn't make a mistake. Following that we have to chase down all
of the binaries and upgrade them. 

I don't yet have the ability to do this for the windows versions. We
need to get the scripts in place so I can automate the task but
probably not for this version as it is bad practice to change anything
at the last minute.

>Is it possible to "export" the list of bugs from savannah somehow?

By hand, I'd assume. Bug tracking has traditionally been done in the
input subdirectory. Several files there have bug fixes with listed
dates as well as some known bugs that are pre-NAG. Besides, these
bugs need to be better documented. I've been so busy making new bugs
and killing them before they get off my desk to concentrate on the
outstanding bugs.

It appears that the problem is a semantic one. The listed "bug" is
requesting that (x^2) be added to 1::DMP([x],INT) rather than
(x^2+1)::DMP([x],INT), which works.

Now doing this:

   (2)  1
                         Type: DistributedMultivariatePolynomial([x],Integer)
(3) -> %+x^2

protected-symbol-warn called with (NIL)

clearly fails but that's the color of a different duck and, clearly, is
still an outstanding bug.

IssueTracker? Did I miss a memo?
