----- Forwarded message from Philipp Lehman <plehman at gmx.net> -----
I've uploaded the file 'fontinstallationguide.tar.gz' to the incoming 
directory on ftp.dante.de. This tarball includes an update to a file 
currently installed as:


plus some new files which were not included in any of the previous 
releases. As of this release, the guide will be accompanied by 
additional resources. Therefore I would like to request a minor path 
change. If possible, please add the directory:


and extract the tarball to the newly created directory.


The Font installation guide discusses the most common scenarios you 
are likely to encounter when installing Type 1 Postscript fonts. 
While the individual tools employed in the installation process are 
documented well, the actual difficulty most users are facing when 
trying to install new fonts is understanding how to put all the 
pieces together. This is what this guide is about.


* Complete revision of the guide for fontinst 1.9
* All examples discussed in the guide now included as separate files
* Monolithic Latex source now included as well
* Added README file

Thanks for the upload.  I installed it as suggested in the directory
