OK, that leads me to a question then. When is a (GNU) package classed
as officially released? I know that there can sometimes be delays on
getting stuff from ftp://gcc.gnu.org over to ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc/.
Do we simply wait until the gnu server receives the updates or do we
take stuff from what appears to be the primary site?
