I hear you, and thanks for making an attempt. I want to make Gump more
available to all, but I know it is overwhleming at first. I think the Gump
Team need to work on this, so this is good feedback that you've given.

We used to be lucky in that we had more hosts, and the build window was
shorter. That said, I'd rather not see folks install Gumpy merely to test
out metedata changes. Since today (unfortunately) it is that or wait a day,
I recommend you wait, and just don't worry if it take a while. Gump is meant
to be there today, tomorrow, nex week, next year -- to track changes over
time -- it doesn't matter if it takes a little while to get going.

BTW: I would like Gump to have a server side web app in order to verify/test
metadata, but that is a ways off, at best.

I think that now we (the Gump Team) are aware that this is a community
education/communications issue, we'll do our best to help.
