Daniel is doing a very focused update of the XS, to run on a more
current Linux base (CentOS6.x/RHEL6.x). So no major component overhaul
is happening in this fast and furious dev cycle...

No need to rub it in :-{ -- we're woefully out of date.

Here's the good news:

 - dsd is taking on a significant overhaul that gets us on current
long-term-support RHEL/CentOS

 - it's likely that Jerry will take on some maintenance, to take the job further

 - this means that when I set some time aside for the XS, most
components are well cared for, and I can focus on Moodle!

 - we're well over the hump w XO-1.75! so that "time aside for the XS"
is closer to reality...

now, all we need is a weekend to recharge the batteries, and we're sorted.
