Ditto regarding June 3 or June 6.
Also, do you folks prefer us to attach a single source.tar.gz file to our submission? For the first problem I only had a couple of source files so I attached them separately. This time I have about a dozen files so it might be more convenient as a tarball.

the problem now becomes, enforce the 3rd deadline and you'll be unfair for the people that might have just read this thread and have not checked back on the forums to know it was an error and the 3rd is the 'real' date.
Extend it to the 6th and you'll be unfair for the people that just submitted thinking tomorrow noon was the deadline, they might have liked the few days extra as well.
eiter way there are going to be a unhappy people
