I'm sure that won't work either. I guess i need to get e-mail working on my linux box....
  instead, let me attach assault.c which should go into the "robotd" directory. 
  Makes bots cloak while bombing enemy home world even when no enemy is around. This makes for more successful bombing.

  I just did a 
  darcs send
  followed the instructions, and it seemed to go through okay. 
  Anyone see it? It's named "cloakbombing"
  If not, I just edited my bounced e-mail and attached it as above.

Yeah, I thought that for about a minute, until I tested a darcs "get"
and found that darcs maintained a pristine copy.  So the "record" and
"send" are diffs against this pristine copy kept locally.  In a   manner
of speaking.

One trick to really learn this stuff quickly is to do a darcs "get" then
recursive copy the tree *twice* to some other place (/tmp), and then do
darcs operations between the two temporary copies, imagining that one is
yours and one is someone else's.

Things to remember are:

- that a "push" can operate over SSH or local filesystem, and that a
  "send" is a "push" over e-mail.

- that a "get" is the initial "pull", and includes the effects of

- that a "pull" can operate over SSH, local filesystem, and HTTP,

- that an "apply" is the e-mail transport equivalent of "pull".

Yes.  Had to do this myself last night, when my repository contained
unrecorded changes to several files but I wanted the changes to go as
separate patches.  Just add the file names to the   "record".
