ready for future development, and commit that.

Ok, I have done all of the above. The resulting tarball is at:


This should be the release tarball unless anyone finds any problems.

11. I'll verify that the release works on FreeBSD (I'm assuming you
verified it on Linux)
12. I'll build Windows binaries.
13. I'll upload your tarball, plus the Windows binaries to Sourceforge.

I don't know how to create/test RPMs and no longer have easy access to a
Linux box, so I can't help with that. If nobody volunteers, I agree
that we shouldn't worry about RPMs. If someone does volunteer, I'll
send that person the tarball after verifying that it works on FreeBSD,
and I'll wait for the RPMs before uploading to SF.

At this point I'm inclined to skip creating an RPM and leave that to specific distros. A source tarball and a Windows executable should be enough. I'll leave it up to you to update the SourceForge page and actually announce the new release.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
