From: Thien-Thi Nguyen
Subject: GNU Alive 2.0.2 available

release notes:

  Nicer to GNU, nicer to XDG.


README excerpt:

  GNU Alive is a keep-alive program for internet connections.
  It repeatedly pings a series of user-specified hosts, thereby
  encouraging (one hopes) the involved networks to not disappear.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 2.0.2 | 2013-09-08

    - distribution now also .tar.lz

      If you have GNU tar, you can use "tar xf" and it will DTRT.
      If not, you can use "lzip -dc TARBALL | tar xf -" to unpack.

    - ‘alive --help’ shows home page / "gethelp" info

      This is for compliance w/ the GNU coding standards:

       (info "(standards) --help")

    - use xdgdirs(1) if $HOME/.alive.d/ unavailable

      If the default config dir $HOME/.alive.d/ is not available, and
      program xdgdirs is, consult the latter to find the config dir.
      For more info, see <>.
