No, no offense taken. We know we're overloaded!
OTOH, I have to roll out some new packages to my internal users in the
next few days, and it would be convenient for me if I could just email round
a shell script or command-line for them all to run rather than making them
click through all the dialogs and select packages in the chooser, so I think
I'll take the opportunity to upgrade our internal build of setup and
integrate one of the relevant patches while I'm doing it.
Bryan, Kohsuke, thank you both for your efforts, and your patience; I hope
to be able to bring you good news very soon.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
