In case you've been living under a rock, there's a new website
that's almost ready.
in particular, see

would it be nice if this new website was _ready_, and not "almost
ready"?  Definitely.

Ok.  Start with "no high-priority or regression-priority bugs".

The waste in my high-level contributions far outweighs the waste
of low-level contributors.

Again, new website.  Yes, I'll fill in the "help wanted" section
if and when the new website is almost ready.

Since almost nothing has happened in the past two months, I'm not
holding my breath.  I've been working on getting development
packages out there... including having it working on OSX 10.6.
Is that more or less important than the new website?  I don't
know.  I decided it was, but I really have no evidence to support
my decision to abandon the website in favor of that work.

*shrug*  maybe that was a mistake.  But it was _my_ mistake to
make, since it was my time stake.  (rhyme unintentional)
