Excuse the interruption, but since many people on this list are in Europe ...

(BTW, TeX and all other software infringes various (bogus) patents
granted by the US patent office.  Anything that can be done to prevent a
similar disaster from happening in Europe ...)

Subject: Fighting software patents in Europe

European programmers: please do a little work to convince the
European Parliament to reject software patents.  Visit
http://swpat.ffii.org/letters/parl034/ for instructions on
how you can help.

This is very important to the future of free software in Europe.
