$SUBJECT have been available in source form for a while at
http://linux-libre.fsfla.org/, sorry about the late announcement.

I also built binaries for gNewSense/mipsel, fixing two issues in the
prior releases:

/boot/vmlinux-* is now the uncompressed kernel again; /boot/vmlinuz-* is
the compressed kernel.  Adjust your boot.cfg or grub config to use the
compressed version to boot up faster.  (This was broken in the now-gone
0lxo build, that carried only the uncompressed file again; 1lxo fixed it
to behave as described)

Fixed, the tarball contained copies of all the “install trees” with the
contents of each of the .debs too, because they were created and left in
the debian/ directory.  I excluded them in the new build script. binaries for Freed-ora are already available in
F-12-detesting; will soon hit F-13-detesting.
