I'd like for "make dist" to make a tar.xz instead of a tar.gz,

Is that OK?

Unless something important jumps out in the next day or so, this is the
last issue before i bump the version number in, set the
release date in NEWS, do a "release commit", and tag that commit.  All
this will happen on the ‘next’ branch.

The rest of the release process:
 - merge ‘next’ into ‘master’ in the repo
 - generate the dist tarball
 - sign it
 - upload it to GNU
 - generate the manual in all formats
 - update web page
 - send announcement to info-gnu
 - post a news item on savannah

I would gladly do these tasks (well, except for updating the web page,
which involves mucking around w/ CVS, blech), but do not have admin
status in the Serveez project (on savannah).  Two possible solutions:

 1/ someone w/ admin status does them;
 2/ someone grants me admin status so that i can do them myself.

What do you think?
