Sorry it took a little while to respond.  My inbound email connection
disappeared Sunday, and I didn't get it back until today.

That is rather odd.  I just tried it with pre12 and it worked fine.
Can you try it again with --debug and send me the output?  That is

  arx get --debug address@hidden/dists--arx--1.0 arx

Also, did you build it with the build-arx script, or did you use
SCons?  Did you specify anything on the configure line besides prefix?

Ack.  You're right.  I changed things around, but didn't update the
page.  You should use

 arx build-config complete/arx.arx 

I've fixed the webpage.  Thanks.

I'm still working on it.  I added a new command "naming-convention".
I also just finished rewriting dopatch.  Now I just have to debug it ;)
