We've just (hopefully) finished up with some minor changes to the

close attention to this mail.

The AUTHOR field of the .info file has been changed to
MAINTAINER instead - this more accurately reflects the way things
tend to work.  This way, it's easier to keep track of who is
responsible for maintaining a script without creating the
impression that the maintainer also wrote the script (although
that is often the case).

The other important change to the .info file format is that all values
should now be enclosed in double quotes - that is, like this:

to the submission policy.
