Apologies for the slightly off-topic post, but I haven't
found a way to contact John Graham-Cumming directly, short
of signing up with Twitter. I'm posting here in hopes
he might see it, or perhaps someone who knows him could
pass it along.
I recently downloaded gmsl from Sourceforge, and I
discovered that the tar file is a bit odd. It contains a
file named README, which is actually a compressed tar
file that contains the same files as the containing tar
file, sans the README.
