Re: post-release package update policy

If there is a fear that users won't get the latest and greatest
package, extend the installation program to compare its receipts
with the installed set (or source set).  Developers do this all the
time over the internet with "cvs update"...

All this talk of multiple-views-of-the-release just sounds like
extra work for the ftp site maintainer, error prone, and unnecessary
if the task is done by the install software.
