Summary description:  Upload or validate a package for CTAN

Announcement text:

 This program can be used to automate the upload of a package to CTAN.
 The description of the package is contained in a configuration file.

 The provided information is validated in any case. If the validation
 succeeds and not only the validation is requested, then the provided
 archive file is placed in the incoming area of the CTAN for further
 processing by the CTAN team.

 In any case any finding during the validation is reported at the end
 of the processing. Note that the validation is the default and an
 official submission has to be requested by an appropriate command
 line option.

 ctan-o-mat requires an Internet connection to the CTAN server. Even
 the validation retrieves the known attributes and the basic constraints
 from the server.


The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at

The package’s files themselves can be inspected at


   Thanks for the upload.

     For the CTAN Team
    Petra Rübe-Pugliese
