hmm, that's a bug.
Thx Marc for fixing that so quickly!

of course checkout *might* have been sufficient to deal with this part,
and then maybe the modified-date wouldn't get set or something (that is,
you might have gotten to change the file, but not the directory)

It certainly wasn't my intent to lock anybody out of there, no.
Hmm, but I am reminded I wanted to cleanup the installfest page and get its
directions separated (so I can point at them from the main).

Again, thanks bunches
I also used find to check the tree's directory permissions. 2001-06 and its
contents were world writable, which sounds like a bug too; probably the script
that used to twiddle those should have been sgid webslave. So I've set that
directory and its contents o-w.
