What are the exact conditions for the sources?  It  would  be  really
nice  to  have  them  on a FTP server for public access.

Because it's technically difficult and expensive to send a check from
Germany to the USA I asked Richard Bullwinkle (the guy at TiVo who is
distributing the CDs) about putting the sources on a FTP server,  and
he  said  he  would  try to, but it "will take a few weeks". This was
more than a month ago.

Maybe we can solve this  problem  by  putting  them  somewhere  else?
Richard, any objections about this?

Yes, me. But it seems the check got lost in the mail. I've resent it,
but snail mail between Germany and USA takes some time :-(
