jib review 2009-12-18: This seems a matter of instituting a standard communication process. Scott, I would like your input for this.

jib review 2010-02-22: Please update work items to be done for this spec, and update spec with links to mailthreads/wikipages

beta 2 work items: uec-query-builds now has '--latest-ec2' option for querying info on ec2. per 'Validation', as mentioned in bug 423856, if you run a daily older than last release it will put MOTD stating newer available.

Status:
Delivered.
