I plan to assemble our "current state of the world" sometime tomorrow to
generate another alpha release.

I'd like to get some feedback from each of you on what exactly you've
tried doing with the previous alpha releases, including a list of what
machines you're running them on.

Things are going to be quite a bit different from the last alpha,
primarily in these areas:

	using the ISODE 6.8 pepsy asn.1 compiler rather than pepy/posy
		(this also removes the need for the perl hackery to
		split up the output file)

	split off the utility packages into separate pieces
		(com_err, ss, makedepend, imake, unifdef) [this is so
		Athena can distribute one copy of each rather than having each
		package have its own copy]

	an attempt at build instructions

If you want to do some preparation, you can begin picking up these
separate tools and applying a patch to ISODE's pepsy code.

See the same directory as before (where the alpha drops are).

pepsy-diffs is a patch file to apply to the pepsy/ directory of
isode-6.8 to fix some bugs & add some functionality required by our
Kerberos V5.

ss/ contains the "ss" subsystem
com_err/ contains the error table subsystem
imake/ contains a copy of Imake ripped off from X11R4
makedepend/ contains a copy of makedepend ripped off from X11R4
alpha4/ will eventually contain distributions of the alpha4 drop (I'll
send more details when it's ready)

it's in alpha4/ in the usual place.  I have to disappear for the
weekend, and didn't have time to fix one problem I know about:
	the 'make all' will blow out in the test/ directory.  ignore it
for now.
