I've created a new branch for them.

I like to announce pretty much every release to freshmeat to keep the
project's 'vitality' stats up (they work according to the release early,
release often principle, so each release makes them jump up) which in
turn puts Bacula in the Top 20 projects by vitality where people (and
web crawlers) can see it. (Right now it's at #4.)

http://freshmeat.net/stats/#vitality

In addition to that, nearly every announced release goes to the front
page and is syndicated on other sites (like Slashdot), driving even more
traffic to the project.

Greetings,
        Michel
