While reading my web server's error log (looking for something else) I happened to notice that my odmrd patch wasn't being downloaded properly; it was triggering CGI errors. It appears that being named the .pl made Apache think it was a Perl script, and it tried to run it. Unsuccessfully, obviously. Now fixed, by renaming the patch. Apologies to anyone who wanted to download it and couldn't (but it's only a trivial patch anyway :-)).
