 ANNOUNCE: The Scheme Repository moves to a new home

This notice is to announce the new home of the Internet Scheme
Repository.  Formerly maintained at York University by Ozan S. Yigit,
this repository will now be maintained at Indiana University by David

Please send administrative mail, comments, suggestions, etc. to our

The repository is available for anonymous ftp use at in the directory "/pub/scheme-repository" and its
subdirectories. The repository has been in place for a little over one
month with no major difficulties so far.

Material may now be uploaded directly to the repository.  Such
material may be placed in the "incoming" subdirectory which is set
writable for anonymous ftp users.  Please send a brief description of
any uploaded material to the administrative address.  It would also be
helpful if you could tell us in which directory of the repository you
think you contribution belongs.

The repository is currently being reorganized.  Some new directories
may be added and existing ones subdivided in the near future.  Already
in place are three new directories:
    incoming - mentioned above
    instruct - Contains instructional material which does not fit into
               any other category (or packages which fit into no
               single category).
    unknown  - Contains material of unknown utility or source.  Help
               in identifying such material will be appreciated.
For the time being, however, the new repository structure will remain
nearly identical to the old.

The README file is included below.

                  library/support, research, education, and fun.
