Well access can be easily arranged.

Not a problem. I do understand. This is not exactly a common platform
anymore but the things just keep on running. And running.

It will come back to me most likely. Fine.

I am working my way through the process now and also making changes as I
go. Nothing too involved. For the most part this feels very much like
the situation with 1.1.1k and all the previous flavours. Just a few
tweaks needed. ALL of the perl scripts are mildly annoying but that is
also easy to fix with some sed/grep/awk foo.

I have the testsuite running now.
