David,

are you absolutely sure that the files are not compromised? I'm asking 
this because people can no longer download any of the MultiZilla XPI's, 
because that results into a zero file length.

I myself verified bug: http://bugzilla.mozdev.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11593
  so something is obviously going on or has recently been changed, no?

Also, I can't check the XPI files myself (at least I don't know how) so 
that is in fact a bit scary now. Is it possible to check the files 
somehow? The main problem is that the XPI's don't show up in CVS so now 
what?

Regards,
Michael
