Hi MJ,

Thanks for your mail.

If you like i could try to send you a screen shot---give me the word and
i'll try.

Anyhow, the page starts off ok, it has a nice icon of a pair of floppies,
and this text appears and looks right:
Downloading GNUstep
List of Packages
GNUstep Source code can be easily obtained from either the main FTP
site or several mirrors around the world:
But after that it's messed up.

There's a button which says `View package list', and it is partially
covering some other text which reads
s]GNUstep HTTP[1 Mbps] Peanuts Archive HTTP Progey FTP [100 Mbps]
Progeny HTTP [100 Mbps] easynet FTP [Netherlands] easynet
This is all on one line, and i don't know what comes before the s (or if
it really is an `s', as it's partially covered).

And below the button there are 4 large dots aligned vertically.

And there's nothing else on the page.

Per your request, i'll try it again in a few days.

   Do you see a list box to choose a site from?  Do you pick anything
   from that list?

   OK, this shouldn't happen, but downloads.php probably ought to pick
   a default anyway.  I've added that and the update should spread soon.
   Adam, is that OK?

   Dan, can you try this again in a day or so and let me know if it fixes
   it for you?  You could try checking the different mirrors and see if
   they all have this problem for you.

   I'm sure the developers will appreciate that: please email them when you
   get chance :)

   I don't think we do ourselves at the minute, but you could ask on
   the gnustep list.
