   AFAIK Alfred wasn't around yet at that time. He certainly wasn't
   responsible for the 0.2 release.

Bushnell made the 0.2 and 0.0 releases, 0.1 never existed.

   No, that's wrong. What Alfred is claiming is that there would be
   not much difference between the latest *snapshot* of GNU -- which
   he released at the beginning of 2006 IIRC -- and a new snapshot
   made now.  (IMHO that's not true BTW; there were some pretty
   relevant improvements.  But well...)

Could you point them out to me?  Maybe we should make a new one in
that case.
