The Content component import is finished! You should now be able to use the
Content project [1] within the new solution to keep track of things. Once
again, if you have any issues using the new install or have any questions,
you can post them in the Project Management System project [2] or get in
touch with me any other way you can and I can help you out.

Some things are currently left in the component on Bugzilla. This is
because they are going to be put into different projects which don't exist
yet. So hang tight if you want to talk about one that is left sitting.
