Hi Clint,

I upgraded the ldm-mcidas decoders on papagayo to v2002b as I promised
a little while ago.  While doing so, I changed where ldm-mcidas
decoders log (some logged into ~ldm/logs/ldm-mcidas.log and some logged
into ~ldm/logs/ldmd.log).  They no wall log in
~ldm/logs/ldm-mcidas.log.  I made the change in the pqact.conf
templates in ~ldm/etc/pqact/*_mcidas and ~ldm/etc/pqact/*_GINI.  I also
made the exact same mods to the pqact.conf file that is being used,
~ldm/etc/pqact.conf.  I will let you run your script that combines the
pqact.conf sections into a working version.

BTW, the mod to the GINI file was to start using the ldm-mcidas
'pngg2gini' decoder in place of the readpng routine.

While at it, I deleted ~ldm/logs/png.log since it will no longer be updated.

After making the mods, I ran top to watch things for awhile, and I
noticed that three processes were consuming papagayo.  One was an old
readpng process, so I killed it.  The other two are not being run as

Lastly, I have been upgrading papagayo to the latest LDM 6 release
candidate as they become available.  Your ingestion has not been
affected during the process (except to improve), so I didn't feel
pressure to keep sending you information notes.

Please let me know if you seen anything unusual on papagayo that could
be related to either LDM 6 or ldm-mcidas v2002b.  My short period of
observation seemed to indicate that everything went smoothly, but you
never know.
