Very Soon Now. As far as I remember, the problems reported on untarring 0.1.11 
were not critical. For personal reasons I was swamped last week and I am 
going to be swamped the next couple of days.

Thanks for reminding me.

AFAIK the tar errors were not fundamental.

In fact, Henning, I am not such a great fan of communication by proxy. There 
is some information loss on the way from the person to you (which error 
message precisely?), and some more loss on the way from you to me. And there 
will probably some more loss on the way back. When there is direct 
communication, asking follow-up questions and getting replies will be quicker 
and easier.

Information loss issues aside, I like to be in mail contact with people who 
are using the GIFT and whom I am trying to help, and who help improve the 
GIFT in turn.

Could you point the person you are talking about to this mailing list? This 
would be very nice. 

If the person you are talking about would like to avoid publicity  (e.g. 
industrial contact) or would very strongly prefer writing in french, the 
person can contact me directly, and as I have read the Netiquette FAQ I won't 
disclose the identity.

I am currently preparing scripts that upload the identical tarballs to both
