Hey, it's your testcases I was talking about.

Ok.  I assume that you can get a new VME to the IBM website that 
supports the changes you are making before/simultaneous to the commit 
you do?

IOW, could you do the changes on your system, and do the commit when you 
are reasonably certain that the VME will be available so it doesn't hose 
the rest of us?

Also, can you leave a link up for the old VME too?

In parallel, I can make the changes to security and r/b/m and get the 
snapshot built and published.

How does that sound?
