Yes, it was a bit tricky.

I tried to give it (again) a shot (I see you've added a full-blown language
in it since last time) ; but I found the documentation a bit sparse.  How
can I activate french hyphenation patterns ?

Nice.  However we need you to put a notice with your name, stating that ant
is released in the public domain somewhere in the archive.
A file named "COPYRIGHT" should be fine.  (I'm not very knowledgeable about
copyrights, but the absence of a copyright notice does not make it public
domain, at least in France).

Should we use blumensath@mathematik.tu-darmstadt.de or the address at LABRI ?

Have a nice day.
