Arguably, nitroproject is more glycerin than devlab. ;)

Yes, I believe George is planning to release 0.31 from nitroproject.
There will be no 0.30.1 bugfix release.

If a stable branch is desired by the community, devlab has only
bugfixes and minimal enhancements. It might still be useful as a
stable branch. Whatever the users want. :)

By the way, zimba:

$ darcs pull http://devlab.oree.ch/darcs/nitrohq
darcs failed:  Not a repository: http://devlab.oree.ch/darcs/nitrohq
