Summer and work travel have really had an impact and I've missed a couple of months of scorecards, so last weekend, I decided to dig in and catch up to July.   I hit a few road bumps:

In addition, I wanted to add in the Red Hat EL 5 versions of client and server, since they've been available for over 3 months now, and that took some time as well.  Anyway, back in action now.
