Released git-annex 5.20140517 today. The changelog for this release is very unusual, because it's full of contributions from others! There are as many patches from others in this release as git-annex got in the first entire two years of its existence.
I'd like to keep that going. Also, I could really use help triaging bug reports right now. So I have updated the contribute page with more info about easy ways to contribute to git-annex. If you read this devblog, you're an ideal contributor, and you don't need to know how to write haskell either.. So take a look at the page and see if you can help out.
