Yes, I'd like to do the update, and make some minor changes to XFree86 
too.  Please tell me again the schedule and what you are going to do.  I 
thought the deadline was for new packages, not updates to current ones. 
 I've been awfully busy getting ready for the fall semester.  The most 
important thing there is that I have to finish preparing for this new 
course called Linux From Scratch :)
