Listen-up, the national libraries services of the government of the United States and the daisy consortium have been developing standards for a new digital talking book format. A number of organizations around the world are developing commercial devices and software packages for the windows platform. This project is to develop a GNU project for linux.

(password is please)
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/CVS co listen-up
