Thanks. :)  This was the real issue I was attempting to discuss.

This was actually a secondary concern.  I forgot to update it the last time I
released Gorm.  I admit that was my fault.  I sometimes forget to update it
because the list is only exposed when the user clicks "View Package List". 
Also the "View Package List" button is relatively easy to miss as, when I go to
that page, it's neither underlined (like a link) nor is it bordered/beveled
(like a button).

On discuss-gnustep and info-gnustep.

TimeMon was announced Sep 14.  I'm not sure why you're getting 404.  That URL
works for me.
