Hi. This is just a short message to say that Linuxworld's over now.

Heck, there's even a good chance you've recovered from any hangovers by
now. Is that considerate or what??

Anyway, can we please resolve this now?

Another thing, the helixcode website repeatedly and incorrectly refers
to woody as "Debian GNU/Linux 2.3 (Woody)". As woody's not released yet,
it hasn't been assigned a version number. There's at least a 50/50 chance
that when it is eventually assigned a version that it'll be 3.0, too.

In any event, it's really disappointing to have licensing problems
stoping Debian from distributing either of the main desktop environments.
