So, how about this for process:
1) Generate offical tarball.
2) Post it on Sourceforge
3) Announce to Inkscape-Devel
4) Wait 3 days (I'd like this to be time based)
5) Announce everywhere else in the world ;) (Anyone know where we can
get a blimp?)
I like this process. Let's plan on doing this.
Btw, I just closed the other XML editor bug - I removed what appears to
be an unnecessary assert that's getting hit; behavior seems correct with
And with the bug that jceuppens fixed and mrdocs verified, we're down to

Has anyone had a chance to bang on the app for a while to make sure
there aren't other issues we've overlooked?
