I think so and just reiterate that noone has volunteered so far, so we 
don't anticipate them being available anywhere unless someone does.

I think that would be good.

Thanks for coordinating this.  I am not sure how many people pick up on 
such warnings, but I do know from past experience that the surprised and 
angry ones that don't until it slaps them in the face,  are more 
understanding after they see the efforts that were made to warn them.

We should also include the information  in the 10.8.2 release 
announcement which will extend beyond the Derby community.
