It's a catch-22.  You don't have releases because you don't have
contributors.  And, you don't have contributors because you don't have
releases.  I agree we need to get busy cranking out some code to let
folks know we're not dead (yet).  The only way I see us getting more
code going is to get new people and I honestly believe that using a
tool like Git will help us do that.
