Thanks for the report.  This is very strange.  Martin, can you please
debug, why it does not work for bison and esp. bison-runtime?  AFAICS,
we received po/teams/PO/sl/bison-runtime-2.1.sl.po by 2005-10-06, but
there is no link in
http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/translation/maint/bison-runtime .

I do not think so.  http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/translation/maint/ is
meant to be the from where you can download the latest translations.

Yes, that's how it should work.

Yes, something went wrong on 2005-09-26.  I'm going to fix it manually
now (I don't understand why the robot does not populate bison-runtime if
new submissions arrive, though).

I'll start with bison* .  Sorry for the mess.
