I've been battling the flu and got distracted for a few hours tonight,  
so I'm not quite done with the releases.  However, I've tagged and  
tar'd 'em so it should just be a matter of uploading the files and  
updating the site.  I should finish tomorrow.

I'm thawing the trees, so you can go ahead and start committing things  
again, but /please/ be especially conservative over the next 24-48  
hours.  Make sure your changes don't break anything, just in case my  
virus-addled brain screwed something up and I need to cut another

P.S. Huge thanks to Benjamin Peterson, both for a quick last minute  
fix to the 3.0 NEWS file via IRC, and his wonderful release.py  
script.  I've hacked it up a bit, but it was exactly what I was  
looking for, and it made things go much smoother this time.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.8 (Darwin)
