Mr. Bartlett-sir-person,


José has published his most recent copy of the GIT repository for Prequel,
which I hope will help.  I also have some notes posted here:

Your concerns about publishing that code "before you fix bugs" are quite
rational.  I'm going to be out of town for a few days and other pressures
mean I won't get to even looking at the code until I'm back, so I'm glad
José beat me to it.
