the daemon tells me of:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: exsheets
> Author's name: Clemens Niederberger
> Package version: 0.2b
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/exsheets/
> Summary description: Yet another package for the creation of exercise sheets.
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> The ExSheets package provides means to create exercises or questions
> and their corresponding solutions. The questions can be divided into
> classes and/or topics and can be printed selectively. Meta-data to
> questions can be added and recovered. 
> The solutions may be printed where they are, can be collected and
> printed at a later point in the document alltogether or section-wise
> or selectively by ID. 
> ExSheets can be used to create exams adding points and bonus points to
> questions (and counting them, of course). What ExSheets doesn't and
> won't provide are any means to create multiple choice tests (as the
> author never liked them and isn't going to use them hisself). 
> ExSheets provides a comprehensive interface for styling the headings
> of questions and solutions. 
> If the questions are selected in external files ExSheets provides some
> means to selectively include them in a main file. 

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new package, and made an entry
for it in the catalogue repository.
