Hello! My name is Janet Casey and I'm working for the Free Software
Foundation assembling a directory of free software world wide, which is
why I'm writing to this address.

This is the closest address we have to a maintainer for this
package. Can you take a quick look through the information I've
assembled to see if everything is correct and if there's anything I
should add? I'd appreciate it greatly. If this is not the correct
address, could you please forward it to the most appropriate person or

FYI- a short explanation of some of the fields.

Programs- any additional programs that come included with this one.
Interface- Command line, interactive, X windows, console
Support- listed only if it's something other than mailing list support
Repository- Any CVS repositories where the program is listed
Related- any GNU packages that might be of interest to users of this package
Use Requirements- Required for using the executable
Build Prereq.- Required for building this package
Weak Prereq.- Useful (but not mandatory) to install before building this one
Source Prereq.-
Packages whose source code must be present in order to build this package.

Please bear in mind that not all packages will have all the fields
filled in (in fact, I don't think we've run across any yet that have
all the fields filled in).

If there's anything you think should be added (particularly
individuals who have contributed) please e-mail me.

Thank you very much for your help!
