Just to add to this: I think it is time that we publish a more recent 
version of WinGRASS. The one which people get to now from the downloads 
page is way out of date and any current version would be better than 
that. In addition, this would allow us to have more alpha-testers.

Paul, as you are the one working most closely on WinGRASS do you want to 
do this ?

If not, I am willing to try to publish a regular binary snapshot of 
current CVS. I don't know if I can promise weekly, but I could try.
