Greetings!  Please forgive me everyone for my recent silence -- work
had piled up after my return from vacation.

Great!!!  Extremely helpful work here!

I've been using debian/changelog to document all my changes, so if you
want to do the same that would be great.  Typically I make an entry in
the changelog, and then commit to cvs with the same message the
modified changelog and the fixed files to which the entry pertains.

My rough guide is the following:

1) CVS head -- must self build and run ansi-tests
2) Testing tags -- must do the above and build acl2/nqthm/pc-nqthm
        and pass their regression suites
3) stable release -- must do the above and build axiom and maxima and
   pass their suites as well, plus ensure competative performance.
   Other items here include correctly running all the gcl-tk demos,
   compiling xgcl and running its demos, regenerating the
   sys-proclaim.lisp files, debian packages on all 12 platforms,
   latest gcc without warnings, etc.
