Thanks for the information.

What I'm planning on doing (unless anyone has any objections) is use a
section of my website for note taking on this task.

Unfortunately, I've run into a problem that may be lsbappchk related:
$ /opt/lsb/bin/lsbappchk firefox-bin
LSB Application Checker Report

Binary firefox-bin:
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x08224a70 ***

I will likely have to query Jeff on this one.
