Hi, John -

Sorry to be so slow to respond.  It IS our plan to funnel a few bug fixes into the 2.8 update stream, but I was leaving that up to other folks while we shovel hard here for a few months.  If no one else does this, I will see that it happens sooner or later.

In the meantime, why not take the 2.8 image, make all the changes you like to it, save it on a server of your own, and then have your engineers go to your server and get that version with nothing else to worry about.  Just a thought.
