Hi, Everyone,

Walnut Creek, in creating the next Ada CDROM, reports a virus which is in
the AJPO tree (which therefore originated on SW-ENG).  I suggest you stay
away from/remove these files ASAP.  I have notified the AdaIC.

>       ada/ajpo/ed-train/baa/OOSEwithAda95/
> The first file was infected with the Compact (1) virus which is a Word
