ITP: mh-ja

Hi. I wish to upload the mh-ja package. 

 === README.Debian ===
mh-ja for Debian

Japanized MH programs.

User programs are installed in /usr/bin/mh and you should set your
PATH variable to include this directory.  For example, insert the line

        export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/mh

into your ~/.bash_profile or /etc/profile.

The original source file is:
 (1) mh-6.8.4-JP-3.01.tar.gz
which is downloaded from 

The '.orig.tar.gz' file contains
 (2) mh-6.8.4-JP-3.00.patch.gz
 (3) mh-6.8.4-JP-3.00-3.01.diff.gz
which is downloaded from the same site, besides the file (1).

The files (2) and (3) are contained in PATCH/ directory
of the '.orig.tar.gz' file.

This Package is originally made by Tomohiro KUBOTA <kubota@debian.or.jp>,
as one of the (add-on) JP Packages for Debian system.
To merge JP Packages into Debian, I take charge of this package.

  to utilize the full power of the Unix shell in coordination with MH.

 === copyright ===
This is the Debian prepackaged version of mh-ja, a public domain  
mail handler software originally developed by the RAND Corporation 
and modified by the University of California, with enhancement by
MH-plus project to use in Japanese environment.

This package was debianized by Taketoshi Sano <sano@debian.org> on 
Tue, 15 Jun 1999 18:38:59 +0900. (This was one of the (add-on) JP 
Packages for Debian system by Tomohiro KUBOTA kubota@debian.or.jp)

It was downloaded from <ftp://komadori.planet.kobe-u.ac.jp/pub/MH/>
