While this item will be useful to track the registration process,

= Registration Details =

* Name: *Guile-BAUX*
* System Name:  *guile-baux*
* Type: non-GNU software and documentation
* License: GNU General Public License v3 or later (The item "my tarball
includes a copy of the license" is not exactly correct since the project
functions like GNU gnulib -- no release tarballs.  However, the repo does
indeed contain a COPYING file (GPLv3) so that's why this item is checked off
-- it follows the spirit of the item.

The item "origin and license of media files is specified" is checked-off even
though there are no media files in this project.)


== Description: ==
Guile-BAUX is a set of Guile Scheme modules (some of them functioning as
programs executable from the command-line) aimed towards easing the
maintenance of Guile-related projects.  This includes areas such as:

- documentation extraction/organization/generation
- dependency (between modules) computations
- extraction of ".x" info for C-language integration
- support for "two-layer" (C + Scheme) modules
- etc

It does this while itself maintaining compatibility w/ Guile versions from 1.4
and up, and operating much like GNU gnulib (copying files into the package, no
fixed releases, etc).

Guile-BAUX is currently used in every Guile-related package that I maintain,
including GNU Guile-SDL, GNU Alive, Mixp, Guile-PG, Guile-WWW, and so on.

Until now I've maintained it in private, but recently, a needed change to Mixp
showed that this important piece of maintenance functionality should be
public, in order to guarantee proper succession in case of ttn bus error...
