[Surfraw-devel] New surfraw version

Okay, so I've created a new git branch for development,
2.2.9_release_candidate; it should be up on the server
sometime tonight.

I am currently taking a look at what we can do to clean up and/or
improve the codebase. Some of the things I'm looking at:

* Removing the TODO. git blame tells me the file originated in
2003 and was last modified in 2004. Either these are some things
severely in need of doing, or (as I suspect), obsolete. I plan
on zeroing out this file and using it for things identified in the
release candidate planning.

* I've mentioned poking around the automake source before; the
naming conventions lead me to believe it's an older file.

* I'll be looking through to see if I can hunt down any more bashisms
or GNU-specific syntax; this has traditionally been a thorn in my side
on other projects as I run a mostly BSD set of systems. I'd imagine
other BSD users have run into some of the same issues.

* Run through the entire test sequence and see which elvi fail, and
ensure no issues crop up there.

How does this sound to you all?

Also, I have this new email address that is the default on my
laptop; the old email address still works (as does
kyle at surfraw.org ;)) Just a heads up in case you were wondering.
