Current CVS does. It also contains a link to http://validator.w3.org/dist/;
a directory that is not version controlled and where packages (tarballs,
RPMs, and Debs) can be placed. The "Source Code" link in the navigation

Anyone have anything left to deal with?

I'm going to do a scan through the ~275 unread messages in my www-validator
mailbox as time allows, but modulo that I'm not aware of any outstanding

PS. Frederic, I haven't heard from you in a while; ping the list with
