Now is a good time to discuss how you can help liblicense.

First of all, you might try it!  Tell us what you think of its 
functionality and interface.

Secondly, you might integrate it into your application.  I'm CC:ing Kees 
who said he was thinking of trying to hook it into Inkscape.

Finally, you can help us improve our test cases.

There are two ways to do this.  First of all, fix the existing test suite 
so that it runs properly (with 0 tests failing) when the library is not 
installed system-wide.  I think that there is some issue with module 
selection currently in that situation.

The other way is to extend the test suite: the current one doesn't cover 
all file types, and we would really do well to be able to say, "PDF 
support was first added to the automatic test suite on August 7 2008, and 
from then on every release passed those tests."

And now I will go to Argentina.
