Dear Laura,
I missed your intent to publish in May the first time around. Having
seen that, I asked today on unix.stackexchange.com about if there is a
way to have a search which will list packages from last 3 months.


While Stephen responded, the issue is probably at zsh's end as it says
bad substitution. Hopefully Stephen can help me and the script works
in due course.

Do you have some kind of timeline/dead-line when you want the DPN to
be published so I know till when I am supposed to give you something.

At my end, it's been summer and heavy load-shedding (i.e. no
electricity) and seems would be there for few days still hence
communication might be an issue but I hope to contribute something
before whatever hard or soft dead-line you give/share.

Looking forward to know.
