Squashfs is a sourceforge project, and it has a link to the main sourceforge
page from the webpage. I've always thought that sufficient because users
can get to the mailing lists, web forum, bug tracker etc. from that, and then
choose what they think is the most appropriate way to report issues.

Missing information is simply that, and I rely on feedback from users to
say if I've forgotten to add important or relevant information anywhere.
It would be helpful if that feedback didn't include an implied
criticism, that way we'll all get along better.

Good, this is what I suggested you do :-) CVS contains everything I've
been working on for the last couple of months.

I intended to do a release last week, but, release testing found a number
of bugs and other issues which had to be addressed, and which consequently
delayed the release.

If you grabbed the tools from CVS more than a day ago you'll find
there's problems with Unsquashfs and big-endian systems. The last
bug fix (a deadlock issue in mksquashfs undiscovered since 3.4)
went in just now, and so CVS should be what's in the release.

BTW Stephen, it would be helpful if you subscribed to the
squashfs-devel mailing list, at the moment I've having to
authorise all your posts which is a bit of a pain.
