It's down, forever. Please use sourceforge bug tracker instead.

The project just needed to be fixed. I did fix it, but sourceforge
ssh cvs access is down at the moment.

Likewise. It's on my hard drive, I'll commit it whenever the cvs
works again.

Escale compiles here. I'll see what I can do when the server comes
back up. I'll retry tomorrow morning (in 8 hours).
