Duh!  Reading the feature-list of the package would be a good thing I 
suppose.  Thanks for the heads up on that.

Yay!  J5 rocks.

Let's start with just the raw official images for now.  I expect to have 
a few groups needing input into the SDK, including software and content 
developers (Mel can likely help with collecting input there).  For right 
now we probably need to start with "make something available" and let 
people tell us what they are missing and/or tell us what they are doing 
to make the environment more useful for themselves.  Over time we can 
flesh out what the developer/content-developer SDK overlay is composed of.
