Yeah, you're right, the deadline is for new packages but having looked
through I see that there are a few things which I'd like in which aren't
in yet.

Therefore, I'm extending the deadline to Tuesday night GMT.  After that
(on wednesday), I intend to roll a BLFS-1.0-alpha1 release.  The main
aim of this is to give me practise at rolling a release and making sure
I know everything which has to be done (there's more than you'd think!)

I'm probably going to cut the following chapters from BLFS-1.0:

IV. Connecting to a network:     15. Other

XIII. Printing, Scanning and Typesetting :   45. Printing
                                             46. Scanning

I'll try and deal with chapter 43. Video utilities myself over the next
few days.
