I'd like to get a new release out the door by the end of October.

Thank you for clarification. Clearly, I can do a snapshot from a git, but it was something I wanted to avoid in an official distribution.

Do you or someone else from the maintainers plan to do the official release in close future? Is there some blocker? I can certainly test the release/pre-release to make sure it does what it is supposed to do.

Hey Jakub,

my release contains patches that are not yet upstream, also it is not an official release but I use it for my own projects, see gtk-win32. That said, we really need a new release of cyrus-sasl, and we probably would be better suited with my release or using a snapshot out
of git.

    Hello there,

    some time ago, I contributed several patches from Fedora that we
    were using into the cyrus-sasl fork on github [1] and if I see
    right, they made it back to the official git repository. Since
    that time, there were two releases on github, but none of them is
    mentioned in the official cyrus-sasl website nor available on the
    official FTP [2] (still linked from the fork readme).

    Can we consider this as an official release? Is it planned to be
    available in the official FTP? Or is the upstream abandoned and
    the future work will be done on github? Adding Nacho to CC, who is
doing these releases and should be able to bring some light into that.

    Why do I ask? I would like to update the Fedora package and get
    rid of the bunch of patches we carry around for years (since they
    are upstream), but I would not like to pick up some "random fork"
    (with no offense -- I really appreciate the work Ignacio Casal
    Quinteiro and Ken Murchison did so far).
