Charlie - thanks for this.  I looked for upgrade instructions to 9.04 from
8.10 . . . we had them for the 8.04 to 8.10(beta).  I couldn't find them for
Intrepid to Jaunty, though.  Maybe they will be put together from the Ubuntu
side today.  I'll subscribe to the Ubuntu release announcement wiki page to
see how if it gets updated with this information.

As for the intel chipset thing - I have an Intel 945, and I've been ok.  ??
Not sure what that means in the big picture, though.

If this could be noted, that would be great.

I don't think we include this.  Notifications seem like the regular ones to

As for the mirror list - all I did was copy and paste from the 8.10 beta
announcement, and then change the 8.10 to 9.04.  The first link I checked
came up as a 404.  I will hide the mirror list for now, but would appreciate
it if someone who can be on IRC today could check on mirror-list status and
update things accordingly (if possible).

Charlie, thanks for providing the link to the Xubuntu announcement from the
Ubuntu release announcement.  :)
