Good, many thanks.  I just uploaded the gs sources to Master/source as
required by the GPL.  Hope this was correct.  What I could do after
Xmas is to convert all zip and tar.gz files in Master/sources to
tar.bz2 in order to save some space.

I just removed it.  This file had been missing in TL2005.  I uploaded
it when it was unclear whether gs will be updated.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
