CTAN has a new package: vc bundle

The package below has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should soon be
at your favorite mirror.

Thanks again,

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The vc bundle
----------------------
This is a script based approach to version control for TeX
documents.  It works more reliable than keyword substitution
based approaches, since it doesn't track .tex files only,
but /all/ files in a working copy.

The vc bundle works with LaTeX and plain TeX.  Currently,
Subversion and Git are supported.

CTAN has a new package: frontespizio

A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at 
your favorite mirror.

Thanks again,
Jim Hefferon
Saint Michael's College

..............................................................................

The following information was provided by our fellow contributor:

Name of contribution: frontespizio
Author's name: Enrico Gregorio
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/frontespizio
Summary description: This package provides an environment to typeset a 
  frontispiece to theses in Italian style
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Typesetting a frontispiece independently of the layout of the main document 
is difficult. This package provides a solution by producing an auxiliary TeX 
file to be typeset on its own and the result is automatically included at the 
next run. The markup necessary for the frontispiece is written in the main 
document in a "frontespizio" environment.

Documentation is mainly in Italian, as the frontispiece style is probably apt 
only to theses in Italy.
