Hello Alan,

I had a look at your github repos and noticed that you didn't create
git tags corresponding to the tags in svn, but the release-info file
still mentions these releases.  This means that henrietta-cache will
be unable to download these old releases.  Currently it has cached
these, but the idea of a cache is that you should be able to blow it
away at any time without affecting functionality.

I can recommend either creating these tags in git, or pointing to the
svn tags for older releases.  How to do this is documented in, but for
your convenience I'll give a concrete example for genturfahi:

;; Old location, in call-cc's subversion egg repo
(uri files-list 
(release "1.0.0" old-svn-repo)
(release "1.0.1" old-svn-repo)
(release "1.0.2" old-svn-repo)

;; Current (default) location, on Github
(repo git "git://{egg-name}.git")
(uri targz "{egg-name}/tarball/{egg-release}";)
(release "1.0.3") ;; A fictitious new release

Let me know when you've updated the release-info files, then we can
update the egg-locations.
