+    <body>
+      <p>Apple has announced that OS X 10.7 "Lion" will be released 
+in July.  We want to let fink users know what to expect when Lion is 
+<p>First, the <code>fink</code> 
+program itself will not run after on a system which has
+been upgraded to Lion.  However, it will be possible to use the
+<code>dpkg</code> program to extract a list of the fink packages
+which had been installed under 10.6, so that they could be reinstalled
+under 10.7.  Detailed instructions on how to do this will be posted 
+<p>(To upgrade fink after upgrading to Lion, one will have to bootstrap
+fink again, using a new version of fink which will be released shortly
+after Lion has been released.  Watch this space for an announcement.)</p>
+<p>Second, due to lots of changes under the hood, there will initially
+be many fewer fink packages which work under 10.7 as apposed to 10.6.
+Thus, even if you've extracted a list of fink packages which had
+been installed under 10.6, some of them may not be installable under
+10.7.  We do not currently have a database showing which packages
+can be successfully installed under 10.7.</p>
