Yes, it took far longer than anyone wanted to get the release out; the
whole "just one more fix" attitude...

I'm not sure what you mean by this. Are you talking about things like
changes in Dogtail's API? Or change sin the GNOME/AT-SPI stack?

The above (or 'git log' from a clone) is currently the best way to see
what's going on with the project.

These two are really the same issue. I would like updates to be on a
more regular basis, absolutely.

Yes, absolutely. Since the 0.7.0 release I focused on fleshing out unit
tests, because I have a backlog of patches to go through. The next
feature I plan to work on is the logging mechanism. It's a little too
old and inflexible. I'm looking at replacing it with something based on
python's own logging module.

Glad to hear that it's working for you. I completely understand what
you're saying. I'm doing my best to improve the organization of the
project these days. As always, input is appreciated!
