I know no one at yahoo.  But with that said I could do a bit on how trivial it is to build a scripted build tool/environment and how to use
the tools available to set up a custom local package server.  I could even write a gui configuration manager to drive the process.  

All the tools are there, mostly.  And since we meet early in the month I could do it for April, possibly March.  


ps Could we please stop top posting as it makes it hard to follow the thread.
