[Gcl-devel] 2.6.1

Greetings, all!  You may have noticed the recent CVS activity.  Just a
quick summary here:

1) ftp.gnu.org is *still* down, so I'm proceeding with a Debian
   package release to see where we are.

2) Stable is now numbered 2.6.x, and unstable 2.7.x.  The debian
   package can build simultaneously installable gclcvs and gcl
   packages to help with our development once this gets settled.  

3) axiom builds with 2.6.1 installed separately.  I have a prototype
   Debian package to release to unstable for testing shortly.

4) Sizes increased, but a bit more work needs to be done here I think.

5) quite a few other changes, check the debian/changelog.

take care,
