IMO, David - as with any user - has his desires. And as with any
project, reasonable management of available resources is occasionally

The project did what it needs to do, suggestions have been made as to
getting around the (relatively small) delay.

No more needs be said except that we all understand the user's need for
timely source and the users all understand the projects need to consider
things outside the user's realm of concern.

Positive suggestions about how to reconcile those conflicts, sans
carping about one's own needs/desires, would probably be welcome by the
project. This is all business as usual for any project such as this.

BOOYAH! And a thinks for the effort.
