Hmm, that is bad. That means that anonymous users get access to a backup of 
the CVS tree, so that everybody must wait at least one day to get fixes. 
Their solution to the problem is not much better: they offer to make nightly 
tarballs of the latest sources, so that people may download them. But that 
means downloading a 9Mb file everytime you want a tiny fix!! :-/

Sorry, if it helps, my computer keeps updating the 
http://ecls.sf.net/patch-0.9-current.gz file every now and then (That is < 
80K). You can use it against the latest release of ECL.
