However we do this in the future it would nice to make sure the packages are
able to be installed before announcing it in such a global way such as  I would have loved to test this in my Jaunty VM and provide
the updates/feedback to the list before we release it to the wild.
Now I am going to be reloading my laptop when i get back from vacation.
Currently the screen does not display in a way I can read the text, network
manager is dropping all the time the hotel wireless (my windows 7 system
