Hello Dan,

Thanks for tracking down the threads and transferring stuff to Tracker.

FWIW: the ExIT content (barring errors and ommissions on my part) was as
up to date as I could make it as of 25th July 2007 (prior to my
vacation) (issues.xml 1.257) and I appear to have done some subsequent
maintenance through 17 Aug (1.261).

I will put forward pointers from ExIT to the corresponding tracker
issues page for that have been transferred.

Thanks,

Stuart
