Doorbell issue now marked as fixed on the buglist at
http://nburl.net/bugs -- if people can pull together a description of
the keypad problems, add that to http://nburl.net/bugs and I/we will
start poking people to get it looked at.

Asheem, can you add what you did to http://nburl.net/changelog -- it
doesn't need to be much, just a short description about what was bust,
and what you did to fix it (including maybe a link to the parts,
maybe, and cost?)
