:It really has about 10 packages. The installer itself calls the Lua
:executable which communicates with the installer via the dfui protocol,
:for which the support is added to Lua by a C module. There are many
:other Lua modules used. All are for Lua 5.0, which is deprecated
:upstream. In theory, corecode has upgraded the whole thing to Lua 5.1,
:which is basically getting the latest versions of 3rdparty lua modules,
:upgrading dfuibe_lua to 5.1 and upgrading the scripts, since 5.0 and
:5.1 have different syntax. I have not looked at his results yet (is it
:already public?)
    Its sounding like I should just pull out the installer we used in
    the last release, fix the pkgsrc path, and use that for this release.
I'm really close to finishing the installer work.  Now it is basically runtime issues, like replacing atacontrol with natacontrol etc.  The installer has been ported.

It's just a bit slower than usual because I  a) am working now  and b) I had those strange read errors.
