us a few weeks (hopefully less than that) to polish some other aspects
of the package, but the patterns should end up in TeX Live 2016.

OK, we'll need a nicely formatted header with a bit more information
about the patterns / authors / licence, but we'll come back to you to
confirm the contents.
(And it would probably also be nice to include some
explanation/documentation about how the patterns were generated. But
that's optional.)

These files are auto-generated for hyphenation patterns. The file that
is needed for churchslavonic is here:

See also https://www.tug.org/texlive/ and try to catch the deadline
for inclusion into TL 2016.
