Sorry, I wasn't trying to pick on you.  I've just been a bit
frustrated in trying to maintain packaging system entries in that it
becomes very awkward as soon as the answer is "you should run
arch/SVN/CVS instead of the latest release".

I've found that with any open source project, the people who are
really into it run from cvs/etc, and I do that for some things.  But
for programs where I merely want to use them, that's too hard.   I
really want to see the world use guile, and thus I'm pushing
(hopefully not too unpleasantly) to have released versions that can be

So I'd suggest that there be a release if the current development
version is such that the advice "run that instead" could reasonably be
given and more than 3 months have passed, or once a year regardless.

A related issue is the web presence; the project looks dead (as
opposed to fairly stable with some progress, which is what it really
seems like from the list).

Is this the real homepage?

If so, it would be good to announce the new release there.
