[molpro-user] Installing 2010.2 patch level 25

Yes, we no longer use patcher or patch infrastructure, there will be a 
fresh tarball for each patch level. Whereas before moving up a patch 
level normally referred to applying one patch to the code, now it is 
really re-mastering many commits into one fresh tarball. This means 
patch level will increment much more slowly, but may include many changes.

The licence token can be downloaded by logging into the Molpro website 
and clicking the appropriate link, which is really what the patcher 
utility did anyway in terms of getting the token. Note, the token does 
not change with patch level, so any previously downloaded token should 
work fine.

Best wishes,
