True, a newer version is released a week ago.  I guess, you might have
tested it.

Yet another reason is that people would imagine that we in Trivandrum
are trying to monopolize every bit of development.  That is why, I
brought it to the notice of all in the list. However, there was only
one qualified response (from Bangalore), which again demands the
developers in Trivandrum to participate actively.  I would talk to the
current maintainers about their preferences.

devnag maintainers have no objection to move the project to
sarovar.org and indeed it is going to happen very soon, at the latest
by the end of next week.

I hope, still you might spare some time to test the releases and send
feedback which would help the developers in a larger way.
