No, I'm not, hence my question.

The old report was generated in June 2013, so it is close to 1.54.

Just the support_status.

It makes sense.

Right. That's good to confirm the old support_status report can be

No, I don't, not yet.
I just did a quick support_status run (using my modified

Anyway, good to have the support_status double-checked.
