Thanks a lot, great (and good-looking) overview. I’ll have a closer look
from DebCamp. Is this against 2009.2.0.2 or 2009.2.0.1 now? Please add
that information to the page.

Maybe it could be integrated into
adding a new column for the platform version (or versions, to get an
overview about more than one platform version), for automatic updates.

I agree with dons that going for 2009.2.0.2 makes more sense.

@dons: Thx, by the way, for your following this and giving your advice.
It is very appreciated.
