I've usually avoided changing that until I've tested it, as part of my
role as system test coordinator.  Occasionally others think it should be
changed sooner, but I think that is quite brave.  At the time the
release announcement goes out, olpc-update is untested.  Chris doesn't
delay the release waiting for that test.

Writers welcome.  I don't see us getting time to describe all these.
And we won't block the release for it.
