Version number: 2.2
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Easy access to the Lorem Ipsum dummy text

Announcement text:

Issues addressed:

- https://github.com/patta42/lipsum/issues/13
- https://github.com/patta42/lipsum/issues/12


- Uses \par instead of \tex_par:D to avoid incompatibilities with 
LaTeX2e's list-environment
- Defines an interface to implement other texts than "Lorem ipsum..." 
without re-coding the logic used by lipsum
- Ships with a second text, "De finibus", a speech by Cicero, which 
inspired the Lorem ipsum dummy text. This text is true latin
and is properly hyphenated by, for example, babel.sty with language latin. 

Thanks to github-user svenper for the text of the Cicero-speech.
