Thanks.  With some of my ports I have been really struggling trying to get 
staging working.  I'd be very interested to see what you did, since it was 
apparently easy for you to do.

I guess I'll keep maintainership for now.  I'm retiring in about 18 months, 
so I may have to give all my ports up then.
