I've been spending a considerable amount of time in the last few
days on getting the PSPP nightly test build and snapshot upload
working.  There is still some work left on that.  In particular,
I want to automatically build and upload binaries for a few
different platforms:

        * Generic GNU/Linux, as a relocatable .tar.gz.

        * Debian packages, for sure, since that's what I use.

        * Fedora packages, probably, because they provide a
          utility (called Mock) for building Fedora packages in a

        * OpenSUSE packages, maybe, there is an online build
          service at that
          may provide what is needed.

        * MinGW, maybe, if I can get a cross-compiler and,
          especially, libraries set up properly.  (I had these
          working once but it's probably all bit-rotted by now.)

        * Any others, that someone requests, for which I can
          obtain or borrow suitable build resources.

Working on this has delayed my work on ADD FILES and UPDATE,
which is almost done but still needs a small amount of work and a
lot of testing.

After ADD FILES and UPDATE, I'm going to try to work on the new
output subsystem in earnest, but before that I'll take some time
off from PSPP to work on Pintos instead
(, which I've, sadly,
neglected for some time now.
