On Sun, 7 Dec 2008, Josef Kleber submitted the new package


to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/pdfcomment
Summary description: A user-friendly interface to pdf annotations
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
For a long time pdflatex offers the command \pdfannot for inserting 
arbitrary pdf annotations. However, in a form where additional knowledge
of the pdf reference is indispensable. pdfcomment.sty is an answer to 
the – from time to time – emerging questions in newsgroups, how one could 
use the comment function of Adobe Reader. At least out of the LaTeX code 
pdfcomment.sty offers a convenient and user-friendly possibility to use 
pdf annotations in pdf files.
Unfortunately the support of pdf annotations by pdf viewers is only partly 
available to nonexistent. The reference viewer for the development of this
package is Adobe Reader.

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
