I had to jynx myself.  Shortly after sending this mail I ran across one
major issue.  Installation via NFS is not possible due to

Rolling back nfs-utils seems to work, however to generate that into a
repo I can compose form is going to take more time than I have energy
for tonight.

This likely means a slip, perhaps only a two day slip, of Alpha.  More
info to come either later this weekend or early next week.
