     I want to test this, but I've arrived late to the party.  Does the link
     above contain the most recent round(s) of feedback?  I've tried to build
     the wip-installer branch, but I found that the installation system tests
     failed, so I thought I'd ask before trying to build it myself.

Nothing signficant has changed since this image was made.  So your comments will
still be valid and appreciated.
