I agree it is probably time for another release, and (if I take over as
maintainer) I will work to make this happen.
I would point out that in future, the only official repository is the
Subversion repository on Savannah (savannah.gnu.org). The last tag
there is DDD_3_3_12_test5; it looks like test6 was lost because it was
committed to CVS on Sourceforge. Some confusion has occurred because
there were both CVS and Subversion repositories on Sourceforge; the CVS
repository was not moved. However, I think it is only a tiny patch
(maybe a change in version number only?) which remains to be merged.
