Not being particularly familiar with Aldor and its capabilities, I can
infer from the comments I've heard here about it that it is well worth
releasing if possible.  I thought there were some licensing issues
outstanding.  If these can be resolved, I'd be most happy to package
for Debian and add to the effective gcl regression/application suite
of maxima,acl2 and axiom.  Does Aldor require axiom?

Am afraid I'm a bit short on time right now for corresondence, so it
would be most helpful if someone else could get release permission
commensurate with the DFSG.

Take care,
