If they are on the ball, they will have to do almost as much work to 
(re)certification after all the changes we have made.

I don't see anything in either page that I would call "crisp".

Yes, there is lots of good stuff.  If you know what the answer is, you can 
find lots of supporting info.

The plans are all down in the weeds, details rather than big picture.  The 
announcement is background and handwaving.  If I asked you, does "X" fit in 
the scope of the project, you can scan the plans to see if you find a match 
but if not, good luck trying to figure it out from the announcement.  Take 
the memlock discussion.  Is there anything in the announcement that says we 
focus on modern systems with lots of memory?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
