Please read my previous paragraph again. You can have all the reports you
like. But it's a red herring and we will not be drawn into the diversion.

The objective was to move hosts, regardless of the remaining cash situation.

The issues will be resolved when someone volunteers to resolve them in
standard OSS fashion, the way evolt has always been.

In the mean time, please let's not get trapped into the "monumental
release" mindset, as that (as I remind us again) leads us into Duke Nukem
Forever territory.

ie as requested every single time:

'not lush' is the best anyone's come up with. Frankly, a lot better than
the existing one. This was thoroughly thrashed out last week, and if you
didn't like it, you've had time enough to come up with a better one.

I think this is a non-issue - it's not impacting on se reading (note that
teo is *already* being google indexed without session IDs) and/or is a
super-quick drupal config thing anyway. I hand you over to one of our more
experienced Drupalistas for a report on that.

List please, put in the place I've repeatedly asked for them to be put.
