I finally realized that and attempted to actually be clear about what I
was saying and asking.

Done.  I now have only Debian Woody and Sid and Libranet Cedar left.  I
also discovered that netselect-apt was no longer installed on my system
but the package was in the cache.  I don't know how that could have
happened.

I have a project I must finish but I was overoptimistic.  I don't have
three weeks; I have eight days.

I had a Sarge system before it changed.

Libranet had me updating from Woody, Sarge, Sid, experimental, a snapshot,
and Libranet itself.  I don't know what I could call this combination but
fortunately I never had a non-functional system.

Thanks.
