Well it seems you have found a solution, you just don't like it much :)

Well, calling something a formal version doesn't necessarily make it more
stable or usable, it's more of a psychological device...  But I agree
that it's time there should be a Lynx/(some number > 2.7.1) soon, even if
there is nobody here to give a "formal" stamp of approval.

I don't know what is involved in the "working out of message catalogue",
so pardon me if my understanding is too naive.  But I assume it means
making (a) lots of changes to the code itself, and (b) the catologue(s).
Is there a technical reason why you cannot start doing that now, under
the assumption that a coming release would be not-too-different from the
current devel code?  Also, are you planning to contribute all your
internationalization changes back, and are they appropriate for general
use? (In that case, maybe we should be waiting for you, not the other way
around :) )

There is no special address for submitting contributions, at or elsewhere, other than address@hidden, as far as I
know.  Just send mail to the list.  You probably should make clear what
the intention of the changes is, especially whether you suggest that they
be included in the general distribution.
