GNU Spotlight with Karl Berry (May 2012)
To get announcements of most new GNU releases, subscribe to the info-gnu mailing list:
You can use the URL http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ to be automatically redirected to a (hopefully) nearby and up-to-date mirror.
This month we welcome Ian Dunn as the author and maintainer of the new package GNU Aris, and Nala Ginrut as the new maintainer of GNU SXML, now renamed and generalized to GNU XMLAT.
Several GNU packages are looking for maintainers and other assistance. Please see http://www.gnu.org/server/takeaction.html#unmaint if you'd like to help. The general page on how to help GNU is at http://www.gnu.org/help/help.html. To submit new packages to GNU, see http://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
As always, please feel free to write to me, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any GNUish questions or suggestions for future installments.
