Serious error

just before midnight in cambridge, a serious incident happened on the
cambridge ctan node, resulting in the loss of much of the
macros/latex/contrib tree.  because of the nature of the incident, the
losses propagated to the other ctan sites.

i have since then been doggedly restoring stuff from backups (not easy,
since it involves juggling files across three machines), but at 0530,
i'm starting to fail.

i've made quite a lot of headway, but there is stil much to do -- i
shall restart when i've had a bit of sleep.

apologies to one and all.
