Re: how about releasing sawfish-pager 0.7 ?

Hi Janek,

To be honest I had given up on sawfish as well - I'm excited that you
have made a new release so perhaps I can migrate back to it (currently
a windowmaker user when I'm not on a Mac).

I just gave you full admin permissions to the sawfish-pager project -
looking forward to trying out the result!
