Well, I didn't actually hear from Ralph that this is what 3.10 is  
going to do. He has been appointed by the Board to lead the 3.10  
release. If you start fiddling with changesets now, it's unclear how  
to get this under one hat with Monticello.

3.9 final is almost completely clean, I think - there seems to be  
just one last-minute fix by Marcus to the M17n package. This should  
be cleaned up by making a new package version.

With your update applied, the ReleaseBuilder package in the image  
becomes dirty. I don't think that's a good idea.

IMHO your changes should be put into a new version of the  
ReleaseBuilder package, and that should be loaded into the image,  
possibly using an update, which possibly could load a configuration  
(see http://tweak.impara.de/ABOUT/FAQ/MCConfigurationUpdates/). Or  
use the Installer in that update, or something else to get the  
package into the image.

Or has it been decided not to use Monticello anymore? Either way, it  
is Ralph's job to decide how to proceed. I'm just offering advice.
