+Using `gettext' in new packages
+===============================
+
+   If you are writing a freely available program and want to
+internationalize it you are welcome to use GNU `gettext' in your
+package.  Of course the GNU Public License applies to your sources from
+then if you include `gettext' directly in your distribution on but
+since you are writing free software anyway this is no restriction.
+
+   Once the sources are change appropriately and the setup can handle to
+use of `gettext' the only thing missing are the translations.  The Free
+Translation Project is also available for packages which are not
+developed inside the GNU project.  Therefore the information given above
+applies also for every other Free Software Project.  Contact
+`translation@iro.umontreal.ca' to make the `.pot' files available to
+the translation teams.
