Probably not.  The current CVS version is not too bad, but there are

Do as you like.  Maybe a CVS snapshot would increase the visibility of
Enigma and maybe even help recruit new developers, maybe it would only
generate a flood of bug reports...

don't expect them in the immediate future.

Sounds like a good starting point.
