Firstly, I should say that I actually took the liberty myself to
release 1.3.2 since Jim is away. So I must take the responsibility
if the release is more premature than Jim had intended.
(He told me that he intended to release it before going away, and I
saw that he had put the release archive on his ftp site, so I
concluded that he had just not had time to wait for firstname.lastname@example.org
to get the archive to ftp.gnu.org before sending the release notice.)
However, Jim has said earlier that he intends to begin releasing Guile
more often. 1.3.4 might be out already during September (= January,
he, he :)

Tom Tromey has offered to run pre-release tests on the following platforms:
If additional people offer to run pre-release tests on other
platforms, maybe we could organize some kind of pre-release test
