Hello everyone,

At long last, I am able to announce the availability of the Y&Y sources.
I've set up a project using Google Code (*):

http://code.google.com/p/yytex/ - project home page
http://yytex.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ - browse sources
http://yytex.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/README.txt - top-level README

As I write in the README, I hope Windows programmers will be interested
and able to produce something runnable (the project contains only
sources; I did not feel comfortable releasing binaries without knowing
what proprietary bits might be in them).  And/or that some of the other
pieces (EM fonts, PDF tips, etc.) can be reused in other packages and
programs and distributions.

As I bring my part of the project to a close, I must thank Blenda Horn
for generously donating Y&Y's software assets to TUG for the benefit of
the TeX community, and many others (listed in the README) for helping
bring the distribution to this point.


(*) I chose to use Google Code because, as a Windows application, Y&Y
TeX isn't eligible to use savannah.nongnu.org or gna.org, and all the
other general hosting sites I know about, like sourceforge.com and
berlios.de, have too many annoying ads for me.
