This is the Debian GNU/Linux prepackaged version of Jay Kominek's
<email@example.com> database of information related to the elements,
formatted for use by The DICT Development Group's client sever
The formatting software was written by Rickard E. Faith
This package was constructed by Robert D. Hilliard
<firstname.lastname@example.org> from sources obtained from
ftp.dict.org/pub/dict; the updated database file was received by
personal e-mail from the author.
* added Debian GNU/Linux package maintenance system files
The Elements Database is distributed with the following notice:
This dictionary database was created by Jay F. Kominek
<email@example.com> (Feel free to send any comments, additions,
corrections, money to that address) It was compiled from a variety of
sources, and is in my opinion, a work of my own. (The only stuff that
was really copied verbatim was the atomic numbers and weights, please,
I'd like to see someone try and exert a copyright on the values of atoms.)
So, I place this in the public domain, if it somehow breaks, you get to
keep both pieces. It'd be nice if you kept the fact that I compiled the
information in here, but is not needed.
