But, there's been a new version. It's called 2.6. It has no official
Windows build. You know 2.6b1 is, to all practical effects, identical;
I know it, too. But a random prospective user who hits the Bazaar
homepage for the first time does not. How hard is (for people used to
it and with the building environment already set up) to fire the
building process and pack a new release?

Perhaps not to you, but for me, it is because I fear the time when a
serious bug raises its ugly head and no one is willing to fix it, or
fixes it and nobody bothers to update the Windows binaries.

As I said, I like Bazaar much, *much* more than git. But it is hard to
shake the feeling that it currently stinks of death.
