I'm feeling better. I even managed to work most of the last month from 
the bed. Actually, I had more time once I got rid of commuting, visits 
to clients, etc., and fully teleworked ;-)

I will try to test build and post notices in the different doc files and 
in the xdocs.

I'm slowly getting it to work, but it will take some time. I think 
Martin had some patches for it here, which I just saw.

While I see that making the user go to independently download files (it 
is just for source builds, not for distribution, AFAIK), I will take 
care that all the text about it put the blame on whoever holds that 
license that restricts this.

Regards, and hope you're doing well.
