I only remember vaguely something was up with OOo and system installed
Cairo.   Actually, I think it required an older version.  I had thought
I'd submitted a note before my recent disappearance (with the DB note),
but obviously I did not.  I haven't had much time at all recently, for
LFS or otherwise, but hope to have some _me_ time very soon.

Sweet.  I didn't get a release message.  I'll try to get to the update
this weekend, but if I run into problems, _I_ can't do it until after
the 1st, and that assuming that we have not entered package freeze by
that time.  Other editors are welcome to do it, but I don't think
anybody else really likes messing with either package (OOo and JDK).
