Okay.  Sounds good.  If you figure out what's going on here, please let
us know.

No problem.  I'm wondering if something happened to fd.o that caused the
errors or if it was a caching problem.  When the new files were put into
place, it looks like several people were still trying to grab the
pre-release source files instead of the final release files (from the
apache logs).  Just want to know if there is a way to make sure that
this is not a problem in the future.  If anyone has any ideas, please
let us know.
