Ravel stuff off?

I've noticed that, recently, I have lost access to a bunch of Ravel stuff. I get this message when I try to access the score to his arrangement of Pictures at an Exhibition, for instance:

"This file has been queued for inclusion on the IMSLP-EU server, but unfortunately is not available yet. Please retry in 1 day."

Does this mean it's being transferred to a different server? What's the story there?

The same problem was notified by other users for various works. It seems that the main IMSLP server does not correctly report some scores that are located on the EU server: they are considered as if they were not transfered to that server yet. This appears to be some sort of bug, to be fixed.

Workaround: get the files directly from the EU server. Please note the following procedure:

1) access the simple file search tool available on the EU server at http://www.imslp.eu/autoindex/ ;

2) identify on the main IMSLP website the IMSLP number of the desired score (for example, 104723 for the full score of Bolero);

3) enter it as a search key on the EU server's search tool. Click "search";

4) click on the file name(s) resulting from the search to open and download them.

That's it.

Thank you SO much! I needed the score for a class, and you have helped me find it.
