Right, but the 5.0.1 was pretty useless, just to stimulate
people :-)

Please start from here:
(which could be better. The file is in web CVS)

I don't have the 5.0.0 tarball anymore (but it could be easily extracted
from CVS with tag). The problem is the growing web site, we are already
at > 600MB (I think of CDROMs etc). If someone puts the 5.0.0 tarball into

 ftp grass.itc.it
 cd incoming

I'll save them into the source tree (5.0.1 I still have, it's back now).
