it's debian/lenny with a bleeding-edge sphinx version (at the

works; not a good test if the ubu 11.04 sphinx will work.

not sure, I'll be off south beyond the reach of internet & cell

view the results here:   http://adhoc.osgeo.osuosl.org/livedvd/

note error log is 280kb folks.... please be tidy

not sure what you mean, but generally this mailing list isn't
meant for data or large attachments.
or do you mean auto-notify the list if it breaks?

I've never been happy with that name, but don't really have much
of a better suggestion...
