Hi Benno.

Many thanks for reporting the problems.

We will fix them in the next-prerelease 0.91 and let you know when we
release it.

There is definitely no hurry: we expect we will need to do several
pre-releases before 1.0.

>> The pre-release poke-0.90.tar.gz is now available at
>> https://jemarch.net/poke-0.90.tar.gz.
> Wget and Firefox complain about the certificate for that URL.

>   https://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/poke/poke-0.90.tar.gz
>> The planned date for releasing 1.0 is Friday 27 February 2021, but
>> this may change depending on the amount of problems found in this
>> pre-release, and the subsequent needed additional pre-releases.
