This is IMHO good news but before it happens, will there be an 
announcement so I can fix my rsync scripts?

Also, can someone clarify what I need to do here:
Lets say I have a few machines which have never been patched.  Some 3.1, 
some 3.3 and some 3.4.  Is there a single directory that I can point 
them all at to get all the patches that they all need?
