Looking forward to an exciting testing session this week - with requests to
test sugar on a stick as well as testing build 802, and testing foodforce
and anything else that takes your fancy.  I hope to see you all there!

Kind regards

That's right.

   > Shall I test 802 if I have been using 801 for a long time?

A small amount of testing would be very good, yes.  We don't expect
any changes to be visible outside of the firmware and battery charging
(behavior should be better in the presence of batteries with extremely
low charge), but we should double-check that everything looks normal.

   > Will anybody fix kernel/X errors if I report them?

Please do report them, but they will probably not be fixed in this
release, which will be happening as soon as this last round of smoke
testing completes.  We might be able to provide you with workarounds,
though, or be able to start creating fixes for inclusion in the next
release.  Filing a bug is generally worthwhile no matter where we
happen to be in the release process.
