Hello Efraim,

I'm working to see if it's possible to revive the mips64el-linux port in
GNU Guix and as part of the process I needed the 1.14.1 tarball to
satisfy the dependency graph. Unfortunately it seems to be missing from
the ftp site (https://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ed/). Luckily one of the build
farm machines still had a copy of it and I was able to proceed but it
would be better if it were still available from ftp.gnu.org.

Version 1.14 was troublesome because it was the largest bug hunt ever attempted in GNU ed. Both 1.14 and 1.14.1 were removed because of errors undetectable by the testsuite and are gone.

1.14.2 is identical to 1.14.1 except for the command line option needed to show diagnostics. If you need exactly 1.14.1 to satisfy the dependency graph, you may change pkgversion in configure and remake the tarball with 'make dist', but it would be better that no package would depend on 1.14.1.

Best regards,
