I'm in a similar situation with Debian and raised the same issue a while
back, and at the time the general feeling was that the developers didn't
have the resources to support an actual release and didn't want to commit
to one.  But it's been a few years, so maybe it's time to reconsider?

I'm not sure that much in the way of committment to ongoing maintenance is
required.  It would just be rather convenient for those of us packaging
for other environments if someone would pick a version that doesn't seem
to have any unusual problems and seems to compile and stick a regular
version number on it (a 1.0 or 1.1 or so forth).

I'm happy to test candidates on Debian.  I realize I haven't done much
recently in part because of our extended release freeze and other
distractions, but I'm generally quite willing to help out when poked.  :)
