Do you know who, precisely, got the CD?  I'm going to try to chase this
down, but exact names would be helpful.

Also, when you push that material out to the community, when did you do
that?  That is, if your work is 2.4.2-based, is it reasonable to assume
that 2.4.2 or 2.4.3 in the CVS repository will work?  Or do you take a more
"fire and forget" sort of approach?
