the daemon reports a resurrection of one of the more attractive packages
from the "olden days":

> Name of contribution: Lollipop
> Author's name: Victor Eijkhout and Vafa Khalighi
> Package version:  0.98
> Location on CTAN: macros/lollipop/
> Summary description: TeX made easy
> License type: gpl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Lollipop is TeX made easy. Lollipop is a macro package that functions
> as a toolbox for writing TeX macros. Its main aim is to make macro
> writing so easy that implementing a fully new layout in TeX would
> become a matter of less than an hour for an average document, and that
> it would be a task that could be accomplished by someone with only a
> very basic training in TeX programming.
> Lollipop is an attempt to make structured text formatting available
> for environments where previously only WYSIWYG packages could be used
> because adapting the layout is so much more easy with them than with
> traditional TeX macro packages.
> This is an initial release updating/organizing old files and
> generating various formats to be used with different engines.
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Announcement required: Yes
> Users may view the package catalogue entry at
>   http://www.ctan.org/pkg/Lollipop
> or they may browse the package directory at
>   http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/lollipop/

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.
