As Neven already replied, there is a 5.0-pre2 profile available for 
download (but not currently in CVS). I have communicated with the author 
and he thinks he might have his profiles updated to 5.0-pre3 in a few 
days, at which time those could be put in place of the -pre2 profiles.

It does make sense to move these into CVS, someone just needs to make 
the "executive decision" as to whose profiles are going to be the 
starting point. While I like Gerard's profiles (and started from those 
myself), I think the "official" profiles should stick to just what's in 
the book, so they don't need the conditional logic or any of that stuff.
