I _do_ care about this project, but my understanding of the X11 parts is
quite limited. My current plans are to fix some bugs in my contrib/
stuff and get ECL support working. I don't know whether this qualifies
me for commit access.

Btw, as git HEAD seems to be the most stable version, I would really
love to see regular releases (say once every month or so, like
SBCL). That being said: I have no problem to be responsible for it.
