well they are working now.  I noticed that source forge was having problems this morning as their web site said they were down due to running update.

Well, I just tried the links on that page to sourceforge for my htdig 
related patches and they all worked just fine. I've copied them into this 
email below:


You will find also that, for the patches that have been around long enough 
to be updated to keep pace with new MM releases (e.g., #444879 and 
#444884), there are different versions of the patches for different MM 
version and comments about each of these download patch files on the 
sourceforge patch web page. The download files names include the MM version 
number it is to be used with followed by the patch version number for that 
MM version. For example, htdig-2.1.2-0.3.patch.gz is the third (and latest) 
version of the htdig integration patch for use with MM 2.1.2


If you absolutely must, you can also find the patches on my own web site 
(see URL below) but there is really no need not to use sourceforge unless 
it is down for maintenance.

And #444884, the htdig intgration patch, installs a file 
$build/INSTALL.htdig-mm. Make my day by being one of the users that reads 
it and makes the trouble I take in writing and maintaining it worthwhile.
