I mangled my release script (not the one that uploads to the
Ubuntu PPA, fortunately) after I posted 3.9, and all kinds of things
went wrong when I tried to post a 3.9-1 tarball. There are some extra
3.9 release changelog entries and the date format is wrong. I'm posting
an updated tarball later today, so it should be fixed then.

task with a full appreciation of its tremendous difficulty, provided
that we respect the intrinsic limitations of the human mind and
approach the task as very humble programmers.
