I'd be happy to see this annoying discussion resolved in the short term.
Regular tags on git make sense, why the big fuss? It depends on the
suckless project how much you depend on your own configuration.
For testing purposes or a quick setup, the defaults are enough.

There's often a debate on idealism vs. realism. I wouldn't say suckless
is unpopular. More and more Arch hipsters found their way on this ML and
fill it with useless discussions like these.
The time spent to write these silly mails and the time wasted by those
who are kind enough to read this stuff could have been used more

The maintainer is welcome to tag a new release when he thinks the
program is stable enough for a new "resting point".
I guess it's about time for surf, even though I remember some guys
have bigger plans for this program.
