I think the redirect should be to 


and not to my site.

I only created my page when I found the original out of date and hadn't
found yours:-)

I have now changed my site to only have links to
and to Jeff's site.

I have a sourceforge account and would be willing if you tell me what to
do---like you I'm v. busy, but I don't mind helping out each time
there's a release.

I'd prefer SF or Jeff's site (although his is often slow), but I'm happy
to keep the _current_ release on mine if that's helpful and to keep it
up to date.

I'm not convinced a wiki is sustainable; we seem to find the mailing
list works well enough. One thing that would be nice is somewhere to put
ideas for others to share (e.g., useful defs and macros).

Thanks for all you've done---and are doing!
