The PSWBTM sub-tree should be optional, only included
with the engine-tester profile. Preferably in such a way that it
is not even downloaded, as it is huge, and only very few
people would want it.

For the rest the optional components are not very big, and
might as well be all in the initial download, and then not installed
if people did not want them. Those are:

Variantist profile:

Xiangqi profile:


The rest of the components should be in the basic install.
Note that the current installer.zip does not contain the final
versions of some files, as we have had some upgrades of
WinBoard in the mean time.

The http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/installer.zip now contains
the most recent files of everything as I have it. If you decide on
another version number for WinBoard, the winboard.exe will have
to be replaced. (Mine says 4.4.0k.)

Perhaps we should cut out the PSWBTM subtree and then copy
this zip archive to the GNU site, and make it available through a
link from the main page as version for beta testers.

There also is a http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/winboard.zip on
my website, which is the bare 4.4.0k executable.

The http://home.hccnet.nl/h.g.muller/xboard_4.4.0~hgm-2_i386.deb
is now actually ~hgm-4, and includes the patch for the broken
Engine #i Settings... menu I made last night. If you already copied
an earlier ~hgm-2 to the GNU website, you hsould re-copy it.
