No it's not.   I had to deal with both a BioC release as well as a bit
with the XEmacs release.  I've also got a day-job that occassionally
demands attention. 

I've passed the hat to one of my fellow ESS maintainers, and we are
getting him set up to commit, but it's not as simple as one might
want, to work out of 2 repositories.

I.e. it's been delayed a bit.
