Subject Re: what counts as a failure?
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2006 00:11:11 GMT
Greetings Martin.

Marking NREF builds as good is simple enough (should be a one line 
change to the glue scripts).  Similarly, altering the output code 
translations should also be simple (Changing two strings in a lookup 
array in display.cpp).  The name change may have occurred during the 
effort to disambiguate what the different codes were.

I'm about ready to head out for the weekend, but I'll make these changes 
on Monday.
