            It's so nice to see this project going somewhere. At the start of the project several years ago there were so many people involved and excited about it. After some time, I lost touch with the project, but still wondered how things were going with it. Congrats on your progress thus far!

            Wouldn't it be better to use the language settings, a-la Multiview, to pick the language?

            Better still, update the Freshmeat record more often and release as frequently as possible?

            Yes, but it's a French project. I don't think you should make the
            French version of your homepage the default, either. :)
