I have some changes on my local disk. I'm not sure how to handle in
bashdb CVS. Depending on the consensus of other bashdb developers, it
will go there one way or another.

Sure. I don't when though. Probably the first thing to do is get it in
public CVS. If someone else wants to lead the development for a
release, I wouldn't mind. Right now I've been working heavily on other
projects like libcdio (http://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio/ and a
debugger for GNU make http://freshmeat.net/projects/remake/)

I guess you are referring to this from 
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=3855720&forum_id=12061 :

   So of course, I rely on the regression tests, and although most of
   these work in bash 3.0 not all do, notably those which fail show
   what the upcoming command to be executed is which is used when there
   are multiple statements on a line.  (I wrote Chet Ramey on this but
   haven"t received any comment.)

 > Have these issues been resolved?

No. But showing the last command to disambiguate where you are in a
multi-statement line is a nicety not a necessity. Alas, it's something
though that can't be fixed in the bash debugger code but has to be
done in bash 3.0.

Okay, if that's what Chet writes, I guess that's what will happen. ;-)

Funny, I haven't been getting any bash-testers mail. Perhaps the
bash-testers list owner can check on on whether there's someone by the
name rocky subscribed. I don't recall getting any bash-testers
e-mail. The alpha announcement was forwarded to me.

There is a communication problem somewhere. I thought communicated the
problem I encountered in alpha described above. I thought it weird but
not uncommon for bash not to get word back on it. Also, I don't recall
receiving a beta release announcement or a bash 3.0 announcement.

Is there a public bash-testers mailing list archive somewhere?
