this would be very nice - I need this package badly, and I have nearly
given up trying to download it from openPKG. This is getting a
nightmare; I have even setup a new account. When being on the download
page, it shows my login name; when following the link to "OpenPKG
Package Browser" and then fetchmail this vanishes.

I have also tried the direct download a lot of times - without success,
every time "(61) Connection refused".

So, please, can anyone here on the list try to download a restricted
package from openPKG? I would really like to know if the error is on my
side or not.
