This tree contains the following top-level subdirectories:

	All source code is under here, including applications,
	library modules, and third-party source code.

	Autoconf macros used by the autoconfiscated build system (configure).

	Documents related to the project.  Includes specifications,
	design documents, and the like.  You should also find instructions
	for how to build the tree in here, within the "build" subdirectory.

	Localized strings for each locale we support, in PO format, as well
	as scripts for conversion to and from Abi's native .strings files,
	which are the files actually used directly by the program(s).  PO
	files are maintained as a convenience for translators, many of whom
	are already accustomed to working with them (as opposed to .strings).

	Regression testing tools (scripts, documents, and the like) reside

	Test files for AbiWord (not explicitly part of regression testing). 

	Support files, other than code, which need to be installed
	on the user's machine, are stored in here.  Items which
	are too large to be practical do not necessarily go here,
	such as the fonts.
