Well, it's open but its an action list.  What you are proposing is 
serious action and requires coordination.

*cough* *cough*  Your asking them to move to a 2.2 kernel system.  I 
don't know that this will necessarily work for them or not.  Fortunately,
the boot-floppies are flexible enough to go either way.

Well, we would want to rebuild the CD image, even if they use the slink-cd
(older) scripts, that's fine with me... just so they update the manuals,
boot-floppies, catch any new pkgs...  God knows if there are space issues
to worry about, even with this minor update.

Do we want to first do a 2.1r3 with just flushing out proposed-updates
and maybe a new boot-floppies (based on the 2.1.11 source which should
be at least as functional as 2.1.9) ?

Or do we want to just go right after a 2.2 kernel ready update of slink
either numbered as 2.1r3 or else 2.2?

(I actually prefer using a point release rather than bumping to 2.2).
