Sorry, no. Let's start over.

I offered to take over the Gborg pgtcl project because I thought nobody
wanted it. It seemed stalled, having made no releases since beta3 in November
2002, no CVS updates since January 2003, and no progress on the reference
manual. I assumed the project admins had moved on to other things and would
be glad to turn it over.

The response I got was no, they don't want to give it up, but I could join
and get CVS commit rights. Not good enough, unless there are going to be
releases. I'm not hearing that there will be releases.

I need this interface working, and I don't want a beta- or CVS- version.  I
also want documentation, and I want binaries for Windows. I think the -core
developers want that too, so they can be free of the core version.  So
what's the holdup? (No, it isn't that "the -core and gborg versions are no
longer in sync" - that's a symptom, not the cause - and is someone really
working on that?)

I really don't want to antagonize anyone, but I think a project fork is in
order. I'll put my version into a new project, and we'll see what happens.
