Announcement text: 
I would like to announce a new LaTeX package called skb.

This package provides  macros that help  to build a 
document repository for
long living  documents. It  focuses on  structure and 
re-use of text, code,
figures etc. The basic concept  is to first separate
structure  from content
(i.e. text about  a topic from  the structure it  is
presented by)  and then
separating the  content from  the actual  published
document,  thus enabling
easy re-use  of text  blocks in  different publications 
(i.e. text  about a
protocol in a short article about this  protocol as well as
in a book  about
many protocols); all without constantly copying or changing
text. As a  side
effect, using the document  classes provided, it hides  a
lot of LaTeX  from
someone who just wants to write articles and books. 

skb.sty v0.5            : the skb package
skbarticle.cls v0.5     : an article class based on memoir
skbbook.cls v0.5        : a book class based memoir
skbbeamer.cls v0.5      : a beamer class based on beamer v3.10
skblncsbeamer.cls v0.5  : a class for annotated beamer slides
skblncsppt.cls v0.5     : a class for annotated ppt slides

See for more information the PDF documentation of this
package. The  history
of  the  package  is  documented  in  /source/HISTORY.TXT 
and  in  the  PDF

This package is located at 
.  More information is at

appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
