I have added a date on my calendar for another beta cut, presently
September 7 depending on work loads. I would greatly appreciate help in
addressing the issues raised by Christoph.
I have notes for changes to ReleaseProcedures.html, and I can clean the
.cvsignore files out easily enough when I build up the next beta cut.
Help is needed with other items on his list...
Volunteers are most welcome.
