Looking good now. I think SF just highlights the latest uploaded package. 

AFAIK you need to be careful when submitting file packages to SF because 
they batch load them. If you submit two *almost* simultaneously it is a 
toss up which one is loaded first. This may be what happened, then again 
those troll gods have been active lately ;-) If I'm uploading stuff I tend 
to wait for one to show up before sending the next.

I managed to download the tar.gz from ftp.community.tummy.com but I had to 
use command line ftp. Every time I tried to access this from a web browser 
it crashed. Just FYI.

Not meant as criticism, honest. Until your massive documentation team comes 
up a with a page you should probably point the 'home page' link to your 
automatically created "I'm too busy to create a home page" at 
http://pythonsiphon.sourceforge.net/ 

Only a suggestion mind.

Andy
