Great! We will probably have the packages ready end of June/
beginning of July, and will inform you via private email.

I'll do my best. Actually, I do currently only write the READMEs,
changelogs etc. and Dennis Reichenbach builds the packages then.

I would really love to bring the document into a nicer shape and to
translate it to English. But up to now I have given coding in C higher
priority. My hope was always that one of the medical practitioners
talking on the openhealth- or resmedicinae-deutsch lists would take
this part. They are the experts and this is a task where they could
really move something. Unfortunately, nobody volunteered in 4 years.
I tried to get a student working on this but was unsuccessful so far.
