Thanks, I appreciate you doing this. Every pair of eyes (especially an
expert pair) helps.

Yup, don't know why it is 'last Thursday', I need to investigate that. I was
kinda hoping it was Leo using the box for other things, but we'll see.

I figured that we ought not bug folks when their pre-requisites fail, since
they (possibly) can do nothing about it. So, unless the module or the
project fails directly I don't add it to the TODOs.

Nick keeps asking for this also, a list of the projects in build order. I'll
try to add it.

Yup, Leo asked for this. I got 'closer' putting the tail into the project,
but I'll work on it some more.

Last I looked .. this problem is because their dist directory doesn't exist
at time of building. There is an ant target to make it, but they don't have
that as a dependency of the gump'ed target. I've written to them (a week or
two ago) to tell them, but no response. Not sure my posting got past
moderator, I could try again ... but I was hoping to nag them instead.

BTW: This is what I worry about with rsynch, I fear rsynch is imperfect.
