Adrian P. Rob­son sub­mit­ted the make­shape pack­age to CTAN. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A method for declar­ing new PGF shapes Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
This pack­age sim­pli­fies writ­ing PGF shapes. Declar­ing cus­tom shapes with cor­rect an­chor bor­ders can be dif­fi­cult. Com­plex shapes of­ten need com­pli­cated cal­cu­la­tions to find the touch­ing point of a con­nect­ing line. This pack­age only re­quires that a de­vel­oper write a PGF path de­scrib­ing the an­chor bor­der. It also pro­vides macros that help with the man­age­ment of shape pa­ram­e­ters, and the def­i­ni­tion of an­chor points.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/graph­ics/pgf/con­trib/make­shape . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/make­shape (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear).

Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

The pack­age sim­pli­fies pro­duc­tion of cus­tom shapes with cor­rect an­chor bor­ders, in PGF/TikZ; the only re­quire­ment is a PGF path de­scrib­ing the an­chor bor­der.

The pack­age also pro­vides macros that help with the man­age­ment of shape pa­ram­e­ters, and the def­i­ni­tion of an­chor points.
