I will do it, but can you be a bit more specific:
Would it look like this:
mkdir -p /tmp/texmf/omega/otp/odevnag
mkdip -p /tmp/texmf/omega/lambda/odevnag
cp *.otp /tmp/texmf/omega/otp/odevnag/
cp *.sty /tmp/texmf/omega/lambda/odevnag/
# change paths/names in `place'
# set $newpackage=1 in `place'
./place ... ??? ...

AFAIS place should be called with the package name as only argument, but
how to find the files? Do I have to add the files to 
	@Docfiles, @Sourcefiles, @Runfiles
in `place'?

I will ask them.

Can the length of the package name be longer than 8 characters? I would
like to have odevanagari but I am not sure if this will work (DOS??)

Best wishes
