This is the right place.

I'm English so I say 24/10/2001 ;-)

Sorry - that is confusing.. I should rename them so that they make

It should be:
<!ENTITY wvdial-buildsize "5.8 MB">
is the du -h size of the (for example) /usr/src/wvdial-1.41 tree

<!ENTITY wvdial-size "101 KB">
is the size of the download (i.e. wvdial-1.41.tar.gz) file.

I've chenged that second one to 101 KB in CVS as well.

Really the *-size entities should be *-download-size entities.  One of
the tidy-ups to go on my TODO list.

> wvdial-version == 1.41 ???  I have version 1.42 .. any reason for this?
I found references on various sites to 1.42 but I couldn't find it.
Anyway - I've been using 1.41 for ages now and there's nowt wrong with
it ;-)

The VIM then openjade way is the way that I do things - it's the most
reliable way of checking everything.

Only thing that would make the submission better is to submit the
index.xml and appendixa.xml changes as diff files but that isn't
essential - it just means I can be lazier...



> Frankly, I can't be arsed
I know *exactly* what you mean ;-)
