What about releasing it when it is ready? ;-)

Honestly, we'd be well advised if we'd already release a version
0.1. Though its's a bit late to start with "Release early, release
often". ;-)

The only missing (code) part ist the C client library which I don't
consider essential. Therefore I'd vote for releasing 0.1 this weekend
without libavahi-client. Lathiat, what's the current status of your
work on that library? I haven't seen you on either IRC nor ICQ in a
long time. 

I will write up some simple manpages using xmltoman.
