If we want 1.1.x on the FreeBSD CD, we're going to have to cut a release
of some sort for them by Monday. Maybe we can give them 1.1 with what
we know of fixed, and cut 1.1.1 later. Otherwise, we may just have to
bite the bullet and figure on a 1.1.2 fairly soon, if any other stuff
of import comes in.

Just the fax, ma'am. Word things in the tone of the infamous 1.0.4
release. Be up front, and just say what was wrong, what got fixed, etc.
Part of this group's reputation rests on not pulling punches on things
like release notes. There's no cause for self-flagellation, either.
The sooner, the better, IMHO.

I'm still trying to reach a UnixWarez machine anywhere to see what's up
with compiling, hanging burping, etc. If I can get a look at this, I'd
like to get it into the next release cut. If not, ASAP thereafter.
