>> What is Hamm-JP?

Hamm-JP is a set of add-on packages for Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 'Hamm'.  
It completely conforms to the Debian Free Software Guidelines (DFSG), 
which guarantee Hamm-JP to be 100% free software.
Hamm-JP is comprised of over 210 precompiled binary packages, including:

 o X Windows System with TrueType font support 
 o Libc6 featuring improved multibyte character support 
 o Manual pager with Japanese support
 o and many more!
Also it contains a lot of free software from Japan such as 
 o Ruby, a newly-developed object-oriented script language

 o MagicPoint(mgp), an X11 based presentation tool
 o and more!

Although at this time Hamm-JP is released as an independent add-on, 
in the future all of Debian JP products will be contributed to 
Debian GNU/Linux itself.  Some packages have already become part 
of the standard Debian distribution. 
Hamm-JP is primarily compiled for Japanese Debian users, but
most packages are very useful for non-Japanese speakers as well.  

Debian documentation written in or translated into Japanese 
is also available on the Debian JP web site <http://www.debian.or.jp/>.
