IMHO lenya making this release (according to the rules set for it) is 
part of an ongoing effort by lenya to make the community more "viable".

I will assert as well that even for a project whose incubation would 
ultimately fail (not that lenya will fail), that does not mean they 
should not be allowed to put out a release. "Release early, release 
often" is a good mantra.

so people can download it :-D

Given the number of questions and misconceptions, I do not think lenya 
is quite ready for exit, and may not be for a while. For projects to 
grow and development to continue, something easily downloadable is 

I believe the Lenya peeps understand that all this is not an optimal 
situation, are working to change that, and in the meantime are adhering 
(for this release) to the rules and guidelines that have been set.
