I talked about a new release with David some weeks ago.
He does not have the time to prepare that in the moment.

If we want to make a stable version with the help of CVS,
we need a stable-CVS archiv and a development version.
I think we should make more CVS snapshots and put a link
from the sane homepage to the current stable CVS snapshot.

But I am not sure if all backend authors do use sane CVS.
It is important that every backend is up to date in the CVS
or is made up to date at least once a month if there have been
any important changes.

You are not wasting your time. It is good to have a recent snapshot.
We should call out an "keep the CVS code up to date"-phase now
and some weeks later we should call a "test the CVS version"-phase.
Some more weeks later we should call a "code freeze - only bugfixes"-phase.
Then we can use CVS to get a new, STABLE version!
