Hi all,
            I remember seeing something about the Certificate process
changed?  But we decided to give 2.1.2 a go again, and everything seems
to be exactly the same as it used to be.  The software asks to create a
certificate request and the same dialogs and info come up about waiting
two days, etc.  Is there something I should do differently?  I mean,
seriously, it's been now 6 months we've tried to use version 2 and can
never even get past the certificate part.  
On another note.  I know I am probably preaching to the choir, but I'd
like to take the opportunity to voice some of my observations about the
project.  It seems as though every time there is a new version released
there are more functionality additions, but notes about "this is a bug,
will be fixed in a new release".  It seems to me that we would be better
suited with rock solid releases, and add features later.  There are some
issues, especially the certificates, etc., that we've known about for a
while.  I mean, I could be completely wrong on this point, but what are
the chances of focusing on one good release soon, and at the same time,
a complete re-vamping of the website with Accurate documentation and
removal of all the old archaic information there.  The ONLY way to
actually install this software is to read the old mailing list, and
subscribe and watch it for a while.  The documents are not up to date.
I constantly see on the list, references to documentation with notes
about how you actually do parts different.  I know this is an open
source program, and community tested, but maybe we'd serve ourselves a
little better to be more professional with the documentation and release
That said, we don't believe everything is bad.  We're still using
version 1.2 here successfully, with minor problems.  And the software is
great, especially the wish lists.  Just thought I'd stick my unsolicited
2 cents in with the hopes that we can keep this issue in light of
everything else.  Hope I haven't crashed and burned too bad :p
