        Building the package from the git repo should still work. As
 long as the .org files are unmodified, the html files et al will still
 be in sync. If you modify the .org files, you need to install emacs23,
 and everything ought to work nominally.

        If there are problems, please let me know, these would be bugs
 that need fixing.
