I see, that's substantially less assurances than I believed the
releases provided.

It still seems like it could be a slight advantage over other
deployment options for my purposes however. I'll most likely be using
default settings for the base installations -- bare minimal will
suffice until I get around to customization (and potential borkage) of
individual machines.

Thanks for clarifying on the tracker issue. That just leaves me with
one question: Are you able to give us a more fine-grained ETA than
"March" for the 2007.0 release yet?
