This changeset is only in packaging metadata, not piuparts itself, so I
doubt it will cause any differences.  However, I agree it would be a
good idea to perform sanity checks like this when we make real changes.
How can I get a login on that machine?  Also, did you have a
semi-automated method to compare the differences in output between two
runs of piuparts?  Obviously, you'd have to ignore differences in dates,
