This is an inelegant solution. Fortunately, I have just discovered that the
files in the queues folder are generated from the original articles in the tmp

generated files don't belong under version control) and added the copyright
and licence notice to the files in the tmp folder.  A new tarball is

Are there any outstanding issues that need to be addressed?
