This is a proposal for an admittedly short response based on what we
talked about yesterday. Give me two yeses and I'll send it or give me
one no and I wont. Add what you'd like to see in there or write it all
again in clean native-speaking English. (:

Thanks for the information about GNU Buck, looks like a very useful
effort. Although hopefully there wont be that much need to use
it. ;)
The current issue-tracking tool of choice is TRAC which runs on
http://blag.fsf.org/ . If anyone posts some buckreport to our forums at
http://forums.blagblagblag.org/ or to one of the MLs it will of course
be noticed and processed (to a TRAC ticket) as well.

On the more complicated issue of a timeline:
At the moment we are facing some issues which our koji setup. These
should hopefully be settled on the next weekend and if we do well and
no new obstacles arise the basic infrastructure for actually starting to
roll the distro again could be available within a week. 
How much work we'll actually have in front of us by then we in all
honesty can't tell by now. 
We wish we could make more significant statements on that particular
question, but we simply don't know enough yet.

Thanks and regards,
The BLAG collective
