     This is the Debian GNU/Linux prepackaged version of Jay Kominek's
<jkominek@debian.org> database of information related to the elements,
formatted for use by The DICT Development Group's client sever
software.

     The formatting software was written by Rickard E. Faith
(faith@acm.org).

     This package was constructed by Robert D. Hilliard
<hilliard@debian.org> from sources obtained from
ftp.dict.org/pub/dict; the updated database file was received by
personal e-mail from the author.

Changes:
 * 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
<jay.kominek@colorado.edu> (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.
