Hi Aneel and Arun,

Dane is requesting that we perform an apt-get upgrade.  Since you are
assembling all of this for production, I wanted to pass the request on to
you.  Apparently, our /etc/ap/sources.list file did not have an line for
jaunty-updates.  I was thinking that that would be best done in the base
image, but do not know what the impact will be on the app layer.  I leave
this one in your hands.  Let me know if we have any issues.  I will stay
online tonight as long as I can.

I added that 'jaunty-updates' line just now.... I did not realize that  
it would 'stick' in the running machine so others would see. Cool, (I  

All that would need to be done from there is to run:

apt-get upgrade # which fails on some obscure error about python-dev  
and dpkg for me (I tried it previously). Maybe because multiple users  
are logged in currently?

Tom, can you try and see if it works for you?
