	You are definitely behind the times. You do not have to repack
 the upstream in order to fix the dir name. Havfen't had to do that
 for years.

	I notice you maintain a number of packages; perhaps you had
 better check and undo any repacking you may be doing. I am surprised
 you missed out on the pristine source recommendation. 

 HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 4 proof by personal communication:
 'Eight-dimensional colored cycle stripping is NP-complete [Karp,
 personal communication].'  proof by reduction to the wrong problem:
 'To see that infinite-dimensional colored cycle stripping is
 decidable, we reduce it to the halting problem.'  proof by reference
 to inaccessible literature: The author cites a simple corollary of a
 theorem to be found in a privately circulated memoir of the Slovenian
 Philological Society, 1883.  proof by importance: A large body of
 useful consequences all follow from the proposition in question.
