Hm, all zip files I sent to Uz contained executables for the C64, the
C128, the Apple //e and the Atari 8-bit.

Maybe Uz sort of presumed that his ftp server isn't the only place you
archive your sources ;-)

Certainly - my changes were _VERY_ far from changing general
approaches / ideas / algorithms !

My personal perception of a 'contribution' seems to tend more towards
the term 'community' than 'ownership' ;-)

However the actual problem seems to be that you seem not be able to
compare the last sources to the current sources. I'm 100% confident
that you wouldn't see any issue whatsoever after such a comparison.

I didn't remove any information whatsoever from the info files.

I didn't consider my adaptions significant enough to justify for that.

The only reason I can imagine for anything missing from any of your
info files is you not putting it in there in the first place.
