Summary description: Prepare a package for upload to CTAN
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

ctanify is intended for developers of LaTeX packages who
want to distribute their packages via the Comprehensive TeX
Archive Network (CTAN).  Given a list of filenames, ctanify
creates a tarball (a .tar.gz file) with the files laid out
in CTAN's preferred structure.  The tarball additionally
contains a ZIP (.zip) file with copies of all files laid out
in the standard TeX Directory Structure (TDS), which
facilitates inclusion of the package in the TeX Live
distribution of TeX.

Version 1.4 of ctanify replaces \jobname in the .ins file
with the base name of the package (requested by Marco
Daniel) and corrects some troff macro usage in the man page
(requested by Eric S. Raymond).


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 .  
Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .


Thanks for the upload.
