27th November 2006

Having had a slight roasting that made me realise Thanksgiving had just been and gone, I thought it was high time to do another merge out to Savannah's CVS.

The most notable things are:

One thing to note is that updating the CVS means that some of the patches referenced by the meta-data may not have made it out to the GPP yet. The current snapshot of what is and isn't external with respect to CVS is available here. Note however that things get continually pushed out to the GPP, so the most accurate way to tell is to either a) try ./ltib, b) got to the GPP and see if the file you want it there.

As always if you have any comments please join the mailing list and let me know (as gently as possible).

I will be making a tarball "x.y.x" release once things have had a little while to settle down.
