    We take the date string 1-1 from the TeX Catalogue, so it should be fixed
    there. Robin?

It's not Robin's problem.  I see nothing special about the datestamp
item in parrun.xml vs., say, paresse.xml.   I expect our parsing is
somehow failing, or it's an old thing which hasn't gotten updated.  I'll
look into.

    That must be fixed in the Catalogue by adding
            <ctan path='....'/>
    I am sure that in one way or the other these things *are* on CTAN.

Norbert, it's not so simple.  Many of them are actually not on CTAN,
even though there may be Catalogue entries.

And I don't see what <ctan path=> has to do with it.  I didn't think we
depended on the path to find the descriptions.  Don't see why we should,
at least.

Later for all this ...
