I hereby appoint you as the new co-maintainer of GNU Chess along with
Stuart Cracraft. Please notify me if ever you wish to step down.
The new-gnu people will mail you a file, maintain.text, which
describes a lot of procedures for GNU maintainers. The file also
describes who you can ask for various kinds of support or advice. If
you encounter a situation where it isn't clear what to do, you can
also ask address@hidden, which is a list of a few other GNU
maintainers who have offered to answer questions for new maintainers.
They will also add you to the gnu-prog mailing list, a moderated list
for announcements to GNU maintainers. They will also add you to the
gnu-prog-disc list, which can be used for discussion among GNU
maintainers, but whether to stay on the list is up to you.
If ftp.gnu.org is the distribution site, please tell
address@hidden when you have a version to release. If you need,
we can make an acct for you on ftp.gnu.org so you can install new
If the distribution site is not now ftp.gnu.org, we can move it there
if you wish. We invite you to put the CVS repository on
subversions.gnu.org, but it is ok to use another site if you prefer.
Part of the maintainer's job is maintaining the web pages about the
program. The main web site for a GNU program should be
http://www.gnu.org/software/PROGRAMNAME. These pages should really
provide the main web site for the program, not just a link to another
site, with all the web information for users; please cite
http://www.gnu.org/software/PROGRAMNAME whenever you give out the URL
for the home page of the program. (It is ok to put pages that address
developers-only topics on another site, and likewise for pages that
In writing the web pages, please follow the style guidelines in
http://www.gnu.org/server/fsf-html-style-sheet.html. You can send the
pages to address@hidden when you are done, or you can use Savannah
to install and edit them directly.
Please also write an entry or a change for the page
http://www.gnu.org/people/people.html, and mail that to
address@hidden also. Note that we don't want to talk about
proprietary software, so if you have worked on any, please don't
mention it here. Your entry can include a link to your home page
provided it fits our usual criteria for what we link to.
Please make sure that the program has an up-to-date entry in our Free
Software Directory. Contact address@hidden for more info about this.
new-gnu people, could you please enter Simon Waters in
gnuorg/maintainers, add him to the gnu-prog lists, and send him a copy
