A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should make its
way to your favorite mirror in a day or two.

Thanks again,

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
LaTeX has long been known as a convenient tool for writing scientific 
papers.  Much to my surprise, however, there are no packages on CTAN that 
actually format scientific papers easily.  The effort seeks to correct 
that problem by giving users a simple-to-use method for distributing their 
work.  Notice, this package is not based on any particular style guide.  
It will only create a generic, two column paper with a single column 
abstract at the top.
