Eh? Anyone who wants them is free to get them and AFIAK they have been
submited to upstream - furthermore most of our patches were not originated
by us, but by others. Some of our patches even come from the author
The problem is that the last upstream release seems to have been around
the Jun 6 1996!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but FSF is not the owner of gmp so I think this
is a bit of a non issue
