vab: Actually, the original name of the system was "conf", back when it was still a single-module C program. Now it's C++ in a number of modules, but I did change the name in the source when I decided to use "Phoenix" instead of "conf".

Anyway, I am going to just release it, but I'm not sure about exactly how I should package it, and what release number to give it. Plus, I'm not sure if it would be auspicious to release it today, being Friday the 13th. :-)

I think I'll make some sort of 0.9 release. I would call it 1.0, since the current codebase has been in production use (albeit very lightly!) for years now. However, there's probably enough rough edges that 0.9 makes more sense for the moment.

By the way, vab -- you're marked as an Observer, though you were listed as a Journeyer two days ago. You're not alone, either...

Here's everyone who's been downgraded since Wednesday:

ewan: Journeyer -> Observer
jbowman: Journeyer -> Apprentice
vab: Journeyer -> Observer
gmc333: Apprentice -> Observer
opiate: Journeyer -> Observer
jlf: Journeyer -> Observer
rao: Journeyer -> Observer
sphair: Journeyer -> Observer
zodiac: Journeyer -> Observer
mhatta: Journeyer -> Apprentice
larva: Journeyer -> Observer
philhunt: Journeyer -> Observer
mml: Journeyer -> Observer
PhOeNiX: Apprentice -> Observer
jamie: Journeyer -> Observer
andrewmuck: Journeyer -> Apprentice
jorrit: Journeyer -> Observer
hv: Journeyer -> Observer

I don't want to debate this again; I'm just presenting the information. (There were also 10 people who jumped from Observer to Journeyer during the same time period.)
