I'll try to set them up on the throwaway box (the old Bugzilla) tonight
some time (after midnight GMT, probably).

If you're happy to host them, what say you we just add a link to some
suitable place on cachalot.ods.org so we can freeze and tag 0.6.1?
Eventually I'd like to see this hosted at w3.org somewhere, but pointing
elsewhere for convenience while we figure out this whole packaging and
releases thing seems the smart way to do it.

We've gotten to a point where a human-readable,  human-editable text format
forstructured data has become a complex nightmare where somebody can safely
say "As many threads on xml-dev have shown, text-based processing of XML is
hazardous at best" and be perfectly valid in saying it.     -- Tom Bradford
