Corrected tarballs for Emacs 23.2 and 23.3

GNU Emacs 23.2 and 23.3 were released without some grammar files from
which the parsers used in its CEDET component were generated.  These
grammar files should have been included, as they constitute part of the
real source code.  New versions of the tarballs, marked 23.2a and 23.3a,
were uploaded, but David Engster noticed that two grammar files were
still inadvertently omitted (the grammar for the grammars themselves,
and a grammar used in the Srecode part of CEDET).

I have uploaded corrected 23.2b and 23.3b tarballs, with those grammar
files added, to the GNU FTP server at

All redistributors are urged to upgrade to these revised releases.
Their md5sums are:

  96a05f185ac32eccff7b06ba67808a80  emacs-23.2b.tar.gz
  f6bec0cdce31a40e879a8b7355d016fd  emacs-23.2b.tar.bz2
  f2bfd8eab7e3b34a0f7f09acc0667e71  emacs-23.3b.tar.gz
  917ce0054ef63773078a6e99b55df1ee  emacs-23.3b.tar.bz2

Note that the FSF has previously granted permission to distribute the
23.1 and 23.2 releases, notwithstanding the absence of the grammar
files, provided those versions comply with GNU GPL version 3 in all
other respects:

This earlier statement covers the two missing grammar files as well.
Just to be safe, RMS will put out another statement granting permission
to distribute, which will cover the Emacs 24 pretests too.

Thanks, and sorry for any inconvenience caused.
