Summary description: minimal method for making generic packages
License type: lppl

Announcement text:

`plainpkg.tex' provides a "minimal" method for making "generic"
packages, combining `maybeload' functionality, fallback definitions 
for \ProvidesPackage and \RequirePackage, and handling of arbitrary 
(multiple) "private letters" in nested package files. The 
documentation contains a central reference for making and using 
"generic" packages based on `plainpkg.tex'.

For catcode stacks, the package actually requires 
stacklet.sty (new catcodes bundle). See README for 
related (more comprehensive) packages.


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 .

Thanks for the upload.
