Nevermind, I just found out that a lot of them were already completed. I 
closed a bunch of them. (Bad, bad Marc.) There are not enough to warrant a 
complete build. I'll do other slips then. Hum...

RFC 1:

Considering that:
- New versions are good.
- People want a safe way to install a custom system with the latest sources.
- I want the book to move forward.
- CVS is a place for highly unstable code. It is a drawing board. It is 
development. pre releases are more stable, but still cannot be considered 

I feel that we should somehow move to glibc-2.2.latest. I suggest that we 
make the modifications in CVS, and let the people test it out. Five or so 
developers can't declare a glibc installation method stable all by themselves.
