I believe it is time for a 3.8 release.
According to http://sourceforge.net/projects/joe-editor/develop the
latest commit to the joe cvs dates from 2008-11-23. The latest release,
3.7, seems to be from 2008-11-03. So there are some commits that haven't
been released yet, e.g. the fix in main.c revision 1.6.
I suggest that, unless some serious work on the code base is imminent,
someone powerful enough should simply grab the sources as they are, call
them version 3.8 and package them as a released version. That way, those
latest bug fixes can be relied upon accros distros.
If you have serious doubts as to the stability of the current CVS
sources, then either they should be addressed properly, or some kind of
branch containing only bug fixes considered safe could be used for the
