I'd like to help with this (I don't know much about programming, but I can at 
least help testing...). Are special permissions needed to post new issues on 
roundup? My reason for asking is that I posted a detailed issue about 2 
weekends ago, along with uploading a sample to the ftp server as per the 
instructions on the web page, yet now the issue seems not to exist. When 
uploading the files I created a directory with the issue number but 
unfortunately I've now lost the issue number so I can't even tell you what 
that was :-(.

Should notes be sent to the list or direct? Pardon me for asking but I'm new 
here and I don't know all the customs/protocols etc. On some lists people get 
upset if you send them direct replies...


I'll be happy to help out where I can - that is at least one thing I can do to
