This sounds like a good thing for the community.  It will mean more rapid
access to the latest releases as we won't have to wait on final code of the
next release for work to begin in the K12LSTP.

My only concern is the "Contingency Plan."

But with the assistance you are giving it shouldn't be to big of a problem
for them to handle.

Thanks for all your work on this...
