I'm currently putting together another RC, partly because there were
some more rename fixes, but mostly because the "old" builds used the
system libxml2 (except on windows) which for everything except redhat5
meant it didn't work - that meant no working CVSNT for mac, hpux,
solaris, redhat4, suse - pretty much everything anyone actually use in
"production".   Of course all your recent work on Debian has been on the
builds with libxml2 included, so I think you've got nothing to do at
your end except testing...

Since this is a largish change it is going to need more testing by the
user group - plus I need to do a little more windows stuff, so there
will be most likely be at least 1 more RC before the stable.  Unless
problems are found it should all be done in a couple of weeks from the
next RC, however the liklihood of "problems" with such a major change is
quite high.

I've spent most of today getting Solaris to compile, and just started
looking at HPUX and Mac OS X.  I'm trying to spend a couple of hours a
day on this, but I'm running out of time and there are other far more
urgent priorities that are slipping because of this.

I'd like to get the next RC out this Friday...
