management, I've badly missed the deadline for the last major status

Since I won't get it finished for a day or so yet, this entails a
delay in the release.
My apologies for the delay.
The new release target is March 15, 2001.
As far as I know, there are no development problems warranting a
delay. In the last couple of days, Martin Buchholz provided two
patches and Matt Tucker a third that took care of the three
showstoppers I know of offhand. However, my knowledge at the moment
is not as complete and accurate as it should be. (Management holding
up the developers ... sound familiar?) I need to put out a status
report, and get the developers' responses, with some lead time before

the build reports, I still hope to propose merging that code back to
the release branch. So it is important to continue building
