Hi Jim.

Thanks for the summary ... 
I'd like to introduce the latest changes in Fedora.

I'd also like to see the transition to procps-ng in the current
devel branch of Fedora. 
It's a big step forward and I'm not very happy, that I'm still unable
to find enough time for that.

Hopefully this is gonna change soon.
Once again, thanks.
