Hi all, - Anything more I can/need to do to bring this forward? - Any quiet concerns? I realize it is a subsystem crossing change, and a lot going on elsewhere, nevertheless I believe this is a time saver in the slightly longer run, as it allows automation of checking, even without a "perfect" code base to begin with. Thanks, Knut
