Jack - it would be worth running your old version again as there've 
been some tests moved from proposed to accepted, but the results 
won't be reflected unless people run their systems again -- so it 
would only help you - as you'll show a higher percentage of accepted 
tests if you run again.

More importantly, we're hoping to move to PR real soon, and our 
request to advance has some numbers quoted -- problem is I need to 
rewrite this section, and some of the ssytems that were passing 100% 
of some section aren't any more -- we're still okay, but if people 
don't run their systems again we'll be underreporting our results
