Tim, did you change the password on the 'Axiom-testresults'
email list?

Gaby, I have seen this same problem recently while trying
build.improvements on various machines on the SourceForge compile
farm and on my own hardware. I recall that you said that the
branch would be "broken" for a while since you were in the
process of making even more radical improvements, so I did
not mention it yet.

As a work-a-round it seems to be possible to specify

  make noweb

to force noweb to be built first.

The reason why Waldek Hebisch's message was held is simply because he
is not subscribed to the 'Axiom-testresults' email list. Because spam
is such a terrible problem on these lists, requiring user registration
is the only way to prevent abuse. The list manager software has an option
to bounce email from non-subscribers to the list administrator. I look
after the axiom-developer, axiom-mail, axiom-legal, and axiom-math lists.
We get several hundred spam messages a day to these lists!

You are listed as a full project administrator for Axiom on Sourceforge:

Project Administrators:

Bill Page               billpage
Tim Daly                daly
Gabriel Dos Reis        dos-reis

with the same rights as both Tim and I:

Id              CVS     SVN     Shell   Rel     Snap    Track   For     Doc.
News    Screen
billpage        Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     A       Mod     Ed
Ed      Ed
daly            Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     A       Mod     Ed

dos-reis        Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     Yes     A       Mod     Ed
Ed      Ed


after logging in you should see:

Your Permissions:

  You are listed as a project administrator for this project.
  You can perform ALL project operations.

If not, let me know.

address@hidden is an email list. So go here:

or more specifically:

and then on to

to change list options. Here you get stopped unless you know

'List Administrator Password'

I thought this password was the same as the other lists, but I just
tried it and it doesn't work, so I guess not. :( The password can be
easily changed by any one of us, but it wasn't me. Tim?

Anyway, once you get there, on the above page you can set the
options so that you will receive bounce messages from postings by
non-subscribers to this list. That will allow you to intercept
and approve messages such as the one from Waldek.

Let me know if you have any problems with this.

Bill Page.
