Hi Larry and John, sorry for the delay in response!

This will answer the question both of you had, so John I hope you don't
mind me answering also your question in this reply?

These tools can be found in the standard maemo repository:

Web address: http://repository.maemo.org/
Distribution: bora
Components: free non-free 

Currently these tools are not visible in the application manager by
default [1], but you can install them with apt-get from the command
line. If you are using apt-get then remember to

 $ apt-get update

first before trying to look for the new tools. Also all of these tools
are command-line based, so you'll need to have a terminal (like
osso-xterm) installed.

I'm not entirely sure that all of these tools are 'safe' enough to be
visible in application manager by default, but that's debatable :-)

John, yes I think I can try to clarify this bit in the installation
section of the tools index page.

[1] You can activate the "red pill mode" in application manager. This
will make these tools and a lot of other applications visible in the
application manager. Read more about it in the application manager
garage pages:
