    Oy, no no no no no no.
    I was just asking for somebody who could tar -xzf linux.*.gz in one
    directory and had a current version of the the tree in another to generate
    a patch once in a while using diff, so I could apply it and look at the
    result myself.
    I do NOT mean to require that somebody resolve all the issues.  If anybody
    does THAT, it should be an "official" release... I'm only  looking for
    interim data.
