I've done the necessary -- the file will propagate when the machinery

CTAN Submission -- arosgn2.1.tar.gz

> I've taken the liberty of installing this new release at ftp.tex.ac.uk

> names is a pain for us, and we avoid it if we can...

Thanks a lot. Could you please delete the old
/ctan/tex-archive/language/bengali/arosgn2.0/ directory?
The newer version, arosgn2.1/ supersedes the old one,
and the new one is now placed under
/ctan/tex-archive/language/bengali/arosgn/

In future revisions I am going to request placement
under /ctan/tex-archive/language/bengali/arosgn/.
Hope this will eradicate the trouble of having version
numbers in directory names.

My pleasure.
