Hi Lorna,

I'm afraid that all messages with attachments are currently being
held by the mailing list software -- it was introduced as a
(rather draconian) anti spam/virus measure.  We've now got some
better filtering software on the mailing list, so I think the
no-attachments rule should probably be removed.

But in the mean time, the best solution would be either to put
your changes on a website somewhere and post a link, or just include
them in the body of a message.

Sorry about that,
