I did the last releases, but I haven't got the time to
look into it.

- find out the status of the libs in libs/ and lib/ to see if some
  of it is worth releasing (I guess not as the authors didn't officially
  announce it and are in limbo)
- summarize the changes into a NEWS file
- make sure it compiles and installs OK, with DESTDIR etc. and rpm support
- "make release" should work

The tell me to set a tag and upload the tarball.
