Let's take care of those software issues before we make a change. It
won't take long to compile new versions and put the new dtd and such
into place.

If you say the RC release works, then it works and I'll take your word
for it and we can use it. Can you dig up that email you referred to?
I'll reply to it so the rest of the world knows too.

I agree, that seems the best.

Maybe today is a bit too ambitious. Get me that email if you can find it
quickly, then I'll reply to it and upgrade the necessary software on the
server. Then I'll let lfs-dev know about the idea. I'm still waiting for
Ryan to reply on the Glibc issue before anything gets done.

Even better.
