        I have no problem with moving forward. Calling hot-out-of-the-oven releases alpha's sounds like a good idea, and we'll pick a stable version and call it beta while everyone tests it extensively, before it becomes an official release. How about that?

        The machine is actually a fulltime webserver that does nothing else. This is why I figured I might as well put a cvs server on it, and be done with it. I can use the mail server sitting next to it for two things, a) 'The Project' mailing list and b) do the archiving/www creation of these archives and maintain a current web page for the development of 'The Project'.

        I just grabbed b13 myself and ran it against some archives that I have and sure enough, it blew up at the same spot it always did. So, Daniel, if you're listening (reading), contact me direct so I can send you the archive file and my strace output - seeing that gdb isn't giving me much information besides a SEGFAULT at memory xxxx.

        What do eBay URLs look like anyways??
