Hi All,

	In the published archive, the following videos bloat the download
and are not referenced:

* image/clock.mp4
* image/CNN.3gp
* image/heroesLanding.3gp

	In the HTML embed harness (and probably the other ones), the reference
to 'udom-svg-202-t' breaks. The test is not there (presumably not approved),
but the navigation through the tests fails as a result.

	Also, as a general observation (confirming DOH's comment about the
file permissions), the archive isn't normal 'tar' compliant. It appears to
have been built under a Windows or similar Cygwin installation and relies
on GNU tar. Unpacking on generic UNIX systems fails. You need to use GNU
tools to unpack it. The Gzip is fine, since most systems support it, but
vanilla UNIX tar or the 'ksh' AT&T environment under Windows can't unpack it.

	Most open-source archives, e.g. Chrome, etc. can unpack with
generic tar - the published archive won't. I'd suggest this be packed
with a more normal toolchain to avoid these problems.
