Re: Compiled files without sources????

    As a first pass, I have added a etc/grammars directory containing the
    grammar files in trunk.  The instructions for compiling the grammars is
    in etc/grammars/README.  Note that the resulting output differs from the
    actual grammar data in lisp/cedet/semantic/[bovine|wisent], because
    those were manually modified subsequently.

This difference is a problem -- it is like distributing a patched binary.
It doesn't correspond to the source code, and doesn't comply with the GPL.

If you add a script that can patch the generated files in the same
way you edited them, that would do the job.
