A couple of unexpected bug have caused us to push this off a 
few more days.  The main reason is that there are a few changes
will really should be heavily tested.

Therefore I will be doing a 2.2.5 pre1 prerelease.  This is not 
necessarily a release candidate or even a beta release.  We just 
wanted to attract as many testers as possible.  If all goes well,
we are working towards a official 2.2.5 release sometime next week.
Look for the prelease RPM and tarball in the next day or so.

The main things we are trying to straightened out are

  * some missing documentation, 
  * a few linux kernel issues, 
  * various ldap patches,
  * and possible patch to the recycle bin

A small reminder that this is planned to be the last 2.2.x release.
The 2.2.x branch has been a fun trip, but 3.0 awaits. :-)
Keep your fingers crossed.
