For what it's worth, I am moving MH from UCI where it has a tenuous
existence to SourceForge where it will eventually appear at
http://rand-mh.sourceforge.net/ (one can't have two letter project
names!). I can make the documents available there, outside of the
6.8.4 release, if folks wish.

I have to finish the MH-E 8.0 release and manual update first though.
