(This message is being CCed to people whom I've pointed to my
bash_2.01-5 for bo in the past)

As I said in my earlier post on this thread, I had compiled some bash
2.01 binaries and made them available under
http://www.math.jhu.edu/~martind/bash/ - however, as I discovered when 
I upgraded to hamm, using those .deb files will make the autoup script 
not work.  I now have at that location some information on fixing one's
system if one goes ahead and uses the autoup script anyway.

I also have re-done my bash 2.01 for bo .deb's so that they obey the
debian version numbering scheme; these new packages are linked off of
http://jhunix.hcf.jhu.edu/~dtm12/bash/ - if you are using my bash 2.01
for bo .deb files, you are strongly encouraged to either switch to
these packages which have the correct version numbers, or to wait a
few days for a bash 2.01 to appear in bo-unstable.

jk@espy.org: I found recompiling bash 2.01 for bo a bit annoying; on
that page with the new packages is a link to a patchfile I created
against the hamm source tree.  Unless you've already gone through the
process of reworking the debian/* files to build nicely under (and
for) bo, you might want to use my patch as a starting point.
