Great, i did think so but it needed to be stated.

Then Dave's candidates are the ones.

The process that you suggested is still needed for someone
else to repeat the process and compare the md5 sums i suppose.
I will do that later today.

We do have a "dist" repository where i have been putting
the html templates that enable the distribution
area at /dist/forrest/ to be adorned. It would be best to append
our *.asc there. At the moment that is not an 'svn co' on the server.
They are manually put there with 'scp'.

If your ~brondsem/forrest/ directory is writable by
our forrest group, then we can just update your *.asc
