There're guidelines on *how* to make a new release, there're no
guidelines on *when*.

Apparently it is resolved, just not released. Do I understand that correctly?

It is unfortunate that you didn't get any response, because it is
obviously great to have a volunteer for this! Were you waiting for
specific instructions?

Are you able to test the grok trunk to see if it these installation
problems are indeed resolved? If that's the case, I guess I could pull
a release - but I do not at this moment have too much time to do a lot
of coordination. Just pulling a release from whatever currently is the
trunk shouldn't take that long though.

Does anyone know if there's anything blocking a 1.0a2 release?
