Or just a maintenance release depending on how much is altered.

It appears to be Android 2.3.6. It's not likely to be ICS so I guess you could call any additional GB release a maintenance release.

I've added a basic explaination for what these files are to the OP.
Novatel Bagphone, Motorola Microtac, Qualcom Q-Phone, Motorola Startac, Sanyo MM-8100, Sanyo MM7400, Samsung A900 Blade, HTC Touch Pro 2, Sammy Epic 4G,

Currently Sammy Galaxy S III running Stock Rooted Jellybean 4.3 because it's just that good. Knox don't scare me
Sprint SERO Premium 500

Would this answer the "what is this update going to be?" question?

They should keep their builds up with the Nexus S 4G sources, which I believe is at 2.3.7. I don't understand why they are so afraid of re-basing to small incremental bug-fix builds from Google. It's not likely to break anything; only fix things. And yet, they keep building on out-dated sources with known issues already fixed by Google.

2.3.7 would do nothing for our phones because we don't have the chip to use our phones like a credit card. So they are probably gonna finish up the 2.3.6 testing and I would imagine that will be the final "official" release for the epic 4G ... at least untill CM goes official

The 2.3.7 build just adds google wallet support. No big deal and not applicable to our phones.

Yeah, I didn't notice that until after I found the 2.3.7 changelog. But they did what I said with EI22, which was dumb really. Not to mention a waste of development resources on, say, ICS.
