That's a great objective, but clearly it will take time to get there, and
even when we've achieved it I think it remains in the spirit of an Open
Source Software project to keep as good a set of instructions as we can on
the website for people to be able to Do It Themselves, either because they
want to, or because they want to try it on some new piece of hardware and
need all the help they can get understanding how it's supposed to work on
something functional before embarking on something which they expect to
presentthem with challenges.

but at the end of the day the size of the crowd at your funeral
will be largely dictated by the weather.
