But I bet you (or someone at least) cares whether we are using a 
released or cvs version of, say, excalibur sourceresolve - or store, 
etc.  There is critical functionality which is continually non-released 
which we've decided we don't want.

TBH, I also interpreted the original complaint to include ECM, which I 
for some reason had in my head someone was trying to create a new 
release of for 2.1.x.

Are we really the only ones using these packages?  Have the others gone 
away from Avalon?
