Name of contribution: Stellenbosch thesis and other utilities 5.0
Author's name: Danie Els
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/stellenbosch
Summary description: Typesetting dissertations, theses and reports of 
  the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor: 
The usthesis class/style files are provided to typeset reports, theses 
and dissertations that conform to the requirements of the Engineering 
Faculty of the University of Stellenbosch.

The class file usthesis.cls is based on the standard LaTeX book class, 
while usthesis.sty is a style file to be loaded on top of the very 
powerful memoir class. Both options give identical output, but the 
benefit of the using memoir is that it has many additional command 
and environments for formatting and processing of a document.

Usthesis is primarily concerned with the formatting of the front matter 
such as the title page, abstract, etc. and a decent page layout on A4 
paper. It also works together with the babel package to provide language 
options to typeset documents in Afrikaans or in English.

Additional packages are provided for bibliographic matter, note title 
pages, lists of symbols, as well as various graphic files for logos.


 a) Add to USthesis docs and to templates:
     -  user defined layouts with memoir or geometry.
     -  parskip package if spacing is required between paragraphs.

  b) Bugfix in usmeg-n.bst in FUNCTION{remove.spaces}

  c) Change default \BIBand from "\&" to "and" for usbib.sty with 
usmeg-a and usmeg-n options.
