I've just uploaded a new release now.  Note that it is recommended to
build tarballs for upload on against the CVS version of
gnome-common though -- you are building your package from CVS so it
makes sense to have the most up to date gnome-common from CVS too.

As for bugs, I think we need to change the default owner (I've missed a
number of gnome-common bugs because the mail just goes to Malcolm). 
Would it be possible to create a gnome-common gnome bugs account that
multiple people could watch and use that as the default owner for
gnome-common bugs?

I'll put in some time to go over the open bugs when I get back from
Brazil next week (I don't have connectivity outside of office hours at
the moment).

I'd oppose a takeover.
