Hi Bradley,

Thanks for the info.
RMS already knows about and approved it.  See below.
The copyright assignment is on file, too.
So I'm Cc'ing new-gnu.

For now, I'm keeping the repository on my local system.
I merely used the sourceforge URL temporarily.

      Not that I can see.

  Thanks for checking.  Given that the job isn't done already, I would
  be glad to make CPPI a GNU program.

  But I think it will be a lot more useful if it is packaged with
  Indent.  Then users would know where to find it!
