Hey all,

I did push some cleanups to prepare for a release 0.9.27,
eventually.  Just if you wonder what's the point of that.

I was indeed wondering if we would see a new release sometime soon
considering that the latest one dates from a few years ago. That is
answered now.

That also brought me to wonder how that release process would be
managed and effectively executed. Could you elaborate on that
point please?

One fact that gives me serious pause in that area is that the
majority of the commits I contributed in the last few days were
simply reverted thus reintroducing the problems they tried to fix
or introducing some new lesser one when the revert was partial.
A good number of others recent commits have been also similarly

That leaves me quite puzzled.

My intent was to use libtcc as a significant part of the back-end
of MKCL. But after some study of the TCC source code I came
to the realization that there were a number of serious technical
problems with that. And now there is this governance aspect
being raised.  All that push me to reconsider my approach.
