Thanks to all who submitted new and interesting material. If you submitted
something in the past and it has not yet appeared in the library, please
feel free to resubmit it, particularly if it was several months ago. I
sometimes hesitate to include material submitted more than about six
months ago because of some vague feeling that as soon as I include version
1.01 submitted many months ago, I'll see version 5.23 posted on usenet.
For those wishing to submit material for possible inclusion in the library,
here are a few simple guidelines that will make my job of organizing the
material MUCH easier and GREATLY increase your chances of having the material
accepted for inclusion:
1. Don't submit bootable disks or disks with any other sort of
proprietary material included, since I then have to go examine
each file to decide if it is distributable or not, and if not,
what effect removing it might have. Unless the material is
particularly interesting, I frequently just toss such disks
into the recycling bin.
2. Organize the distribution in a manner similar to my disks. I.E,
place all files related to a particular submission under a single
directory on the disk. If there is more than one submission per
disk, place each submission in its own directory.
3. Try to write a simple entry for my "Contents" listing that
summarizes your submission. It should be about 3-10 lines, and
include the current version number, the version and disk number
of the most recent version (if any) that was last included in the
library, whether or not source is included, and an "Author" list.
4. Ensure that your submission will run correctly from its sub-
directory and if necessary, supply a script runnable from workbench
(via :c/xicon or c:iconx) that makes all necessary assigns, copies
fonts and libraries, etc.
5. Send your submission in a sturdy envelope with sufficient padding.
