No, I was asking:
  1) Why the big number jump?
  2) Where should I be looking for up-to-date GNOME information, since
     often major things are done with no information sent to this list
  3) What are the details regarding the new structure to the FTP site
The fact that I refer to the RPMS is because their removal was one of the
major things that was done with no information sent to the list.

Understandable, the switch from RedHat 5.0 to RedHat 5.1 came very close
to the switch from 0.13 to 0.20.  I would have been surprised if there
weren't problems with the RPMs.

Sounds good.  Thanks for the reply.
