+1!  And bravo to Jason S. for taking the initiative to go ahead and change the wiki page to reflect this current reality.


P.S. (and apologizes for flippancy, I mean no offense)
Or, in honor of the new year, I'd like to suggest we bump the version to 10.0 and start working our way down to 0.0.  This plan has the following advantages:

- we would probably get the project 15 minutes of fame on Slashdot or something
- it meets Galen's monotonicity requirement, so we know he's on board
- people would find it really confusing, or maybe exciting
- when we reach "0.0", then Evergreen is over and we get to do something else with our lives

Who's with me?
