I think you should just try it out.  If you get stuck, just stop and
ask.  I'll try to glance at the list at least every couple of days.

Do you have access to test systems yet?  If so, could you start a
round of tests?  I have a script to do that (I think I sent you
before, otherwise look in my $HOME).

You will need upload access; I think Jim can help with that.

Thanks; and sorry for my continued lack of time.
