There's a target called "nmhdist" in the Makefile (once you've
generated that using the autoconf tools). Ultimately it uses the
string in the file VERSION, IIRC, but I think it's the autoconf tools
which read that in.

I think the first step should be to create a 1.3 branch in CVS and then
do the release work on that. There are some changes I've been keeping
to myself because they're a bit too radical to go into the next release,
I think, and if we branched I'd be able to check them into the trunk.

After branching we could generate a 1.3 release candidate. I suggest
the string "1.3-RC1" go into the VERSION file (on the 1.3 branch).
