/me grovels and apologises :-)

In my defence, I've been registering for the new year at university and
so haven't been doing my email as religiously as I should.

Heh - funny you should use that analogy; I'm a medical student...

I'll definately help - obviously I can't do my own but I can do yours if
you want.  I'll pick up a couple as soon as I have a bit of spare time.

Of course I'll be helping.

You're not the only one - I have a printed copy next to my monitor.

I agree 100% with this.  BTW, Jeff, I cleaned up the openssl install
procedure so it's simpler, FHS compliant and doesn't overwrite the man
pages.  I'll let you have a look at it again and tell me what you think.

Can I make an appeal.  Can ANYBODY who can help PLEASE speak up - either
with QA stuff or writing the instructions in the first place... Jeff and
I aren't supermen you know ;-)
