Actually, we found a few glitches and are repackaging. If you hold off
an hour or so, I'll have 20020920 up, which will be the public

I see lots of files there (.diff.gz, .dsc.txt, .changes.txt,
.upload.txt) and I have no idea how they were generated.  Can you walk
me through the process of building the MLton debian package from the
MLton source tgz?  Do you have a script to do most of it?  I have no
idea how it works and it would be faster for you to tell me, or at
least send a shell transcript of when you make 20020920.  Thanks.

I'll take it over.  I'll worry about access to the archive later.
