Just so "upstream" (from my debian perspective) tiff people know, I've
prepared a fake release of libtiff based on the branch-3-9 branch in CVS
and called it "3.9.0beta+deb1".  I basically followed the release
instructions minus creating a new file in the html directory, verified
source and binary compatibility with 3.8.2, and uploaded it to debian's
experimental distribution.  There is enough interest in something newer
than 3.8.2 in debian that, unless there are any major objections either
from tiff maintainers or debian developers, I plan to make that be the
standard version in debian.  Once this goes through, I will feel free to
upload a beta of 4.0.0 to debian's experimental.  I haven't been doing
that up to now because I haven't wanted to lock myself out of being able
to upload something based on 3.9.  So this is just an FYI to tiff
maintainers that debian may soon have an unofficial release of libtiff
in it, based on my belief (from discussions on this list) that the
current 3.9 branch is probably pretty much ready to go and certainly
better than 3.8.2.  It's not too late to stop me though. :-)
