Overview
========

The reledmac package is for typesetting critical editions. The reledpar
package is an extension of reledmac enabling parallel typesetting in
columns or on facing pages.

Reledmac and reledpar are successors of eledmac and eledpar, which were
successor of ledmac and ledpar. Ledmac was a LaTeX port, and extension,
of the plain TeX EDMAC, TABMAC and EDSTANZA macros.

The package is available on [CTAN](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/reledmac).

    "issueXXX", where "XXX" is the issue number.
-   Once the problem has a possible solution, Maïeul Rouquette will ask
    you to test the new branch:
    -   Download the zip file of the branch (or, if you know Git, go to
        the branch there):
        -   Go to [the project page](https://github.com/maieul/ledmac/).
        -   Choose the correct branch in the "branch" menu.

        -   Unzip the file
    -   Run the `.ins` files with pdflatex, to obtain the `.sty` files.
    -   Put the `.sty` files with your test files (in the same folder).
    -   Look on file issueXXX.tex get a MWE of the new feature.
    -   Make your report.
