[Maintain] 'Staging' functions

I've been using maintain v2.4.2-RC4 to convert our network from static 
addressing to static DHCP over the last couple of months in 
preparation for a network renumbering that is coming in the next 6-12 

Part of my network is 15 student computer labs with ~390 hosts and I'd 
like to "preload" records for them into the maintain database. It 
looks like the 'staging' table and functions are what I need to use, 
but I don't see any code that causes records to move from staging to 
the actual hosts table. Am I missing something or is the staging stuff 
not finished yet?

Thanks for an excellent product!
