Intent to package: Remembrance Agent
While working on my final project last thrusday I stumbled into
"Rembrance Agent", actually it is an emacs-mode alongside some indexing
stuff that assists the user in finding indexed papers relevant to what he is
Since it was an Easy Thing (tm :) I have packaged and have it ready
to upload if theres is nothing against it... I have only one question: this
is currently work based on AI, so I don't see where it could fit, I have set
Section to 'misc' but I would like suggestions on this. BTW it is GPL'ed.
Here is the control header:

Description: Remembrance Agent
The Remembrance Agent is one of the projects being developed by the MIT
Media Lab's software agents group. Given a collection of the user's
accumulated email, usenet news articles, papers, saved HTML files and
text notes, it attempts to find those documents which are most relevant to
the user's current context. That is, it searches this collection of text
for the documents which bear the highest word-for-word similarity to the
text the user is currently editing, in the hope that they will also bear
high conceptual similarity and thus be useful to the user's current work.
These suggestions are continuously displayed in a small buffer at the
bottom of the user's emacs buffer. If a suggestion looks useful, the full
text can be retrieved with a single command.
