Summary description:  Prepare a package for upload to CTAN

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 1.7 of ctanify includes a modification proposed by Brent
 Longborough to store <package>.tex by default in the TDS doc tree.
