Nothing inside the tarball got renamed, so the hunks HTML is fine. Here
is how they got named:
ALFS-SYNTAX-DOC-CVS.txt -> doc/syntax_doc.txt
ALFS-SYNTAX-DOC-CVS-NOHUNKS.html -> doc/syntax_doc.html
ALFS-SYNTAX-DOC-CVS-html.tar.bz2 -> unpacked into doc/syntax_doc
Same for nALFS-USERS-GUIDE and nALFS-HACKERS-GUIDE. No big deal, the
bootstrap script knows what to do now.

I'm fine with having the "view" website options always display CVS
snapshots; having downloadable copies of previous versions is fine too.
When you pull a "stable" release, those can just be put into
downloads/stable along with the nALFS tarball, and then moved to
alfs-museum when a new nALFS release comes along.
