== Description: ==
reMarkable Connection Utility (RCU) provides all-in-one offline management of
the reMarkable(R) tablet device. With RCU, users may create and restore full
system backups, downgrade their tablet's OS, capture screenshots, manage
notebooks, templates, wallpapers, and third-party software.

RCU is special because the manufacturer of this device pushes its users into
their document synchronization "cloud". While they are nice enough to provide
SSH access to the tablet, this is only useful for advanced users. RCU, working
through that SSH connection, makes it simple for non-technical users to manage
their device.

The application is licensed as GPLv3 and is written in Python (3.6+) using the
PySide2 (Qt) graphics framework. It is incredibly portable because it has few
dependencies (which are LGPL2.1, LGPLv3, and GPLv3-compatible).

Although RCU is developed on FreeBSD 12.1, it may run almost anywhere, and is
tested on Ubuntu 16.04, macOS 10.11, and Windows 10.

A draft of the user manual is available at:

== Other Software Required: ==
Python 3.8 - GPL Compatible -

PySide2 - LGPLv3 -

Qt - LGPLv2.1 -

Paramiko - LGPLv2.1 -

IMX USB Loader - LGPLv2.1 -

== Other Comments: ==

I am the author of RCU and I would like to use Savannah as a public mailing
list. Although RCU is libre software (GPLv3), I do not distribute it gratis; I
want to sell this software, and so I would like to retain my right to
distribute the source code only to those who have paid for my version. I won't
mind keeping RCU's code in Savannah if it can remain private, but I primarily
want to have a public mailing list for user contributions. Please email me at
<> to discuss this, if necessary.

My project follows all of the guidelines for Savannah, and so I hope this
application may be approved.

Thanks for reviewing my request,
