Another draft is available, same locations.

I've also prepared a zip file with the two MS Word .doc files used to
produce the .pdf files (Microsoft Word 2002 v10.4219). These files are
released as-is.

Anyone who finds errors and/or omissions and then changes the .doc files
locally, PLEASE do send a bug report as well, either via the list or to so that I can keep my versions up-to-date.
