I think CVS is in a relatively stable state at the moment, so 1.3.4 
should be on the immediate horizon.  I've fixed the following 
last-minute bugs lately:

* a few #ifdef-related problems dealing with --disable-wrapping and 

* nano should now automatically install an "rnano" symlink since we have 
a restricted mode (I think I've gotten the spec file to handle this 
properly as well; the binaries directory should only contain "nano" and 
"rnano", as far as I can tell, so using a wildcard should get them both; 
in any case, the spec file for GNU ed, with its "red" symlink, in Fedora 
core 2 uses the same technique)

* opening multiple files on the command line should properly display 
"Close" in the shortcut list and should also draw the titlebar before 
loading in case the file takes a long time to load

Etc.  I'm going to be completely away from email for the next few days, 
so I won't be able to do much in the way of code changes then, but if 
anyone wants to do some testing then to make sure that there aren't any 
more showstopping bugs that I don't already know about, that would be 
ideal.  When I get back, assuming there aren't any showstopping bugs in 
the meantime, I can do the release.
