Dear Hans: I have created a tutorial for using the PacletInfo.m file and submitted it to the Wolfram Library Archive (a.k.a. Wolfram Information Center). If they accept it (they will answer within a month), then this technique will be documented in a Wolfram Research page. I do NOT work for Wolfram Research, I canNOT tell you what Wolfram Research will do in the future about the use of the PacletInfo.m files, however I am certified Mathematica Instructor (http://www.wolfram.com/services/education/instructors/munoz.html) and I do believe the use of the PacletInfo.m file is a good, safe technique.

Jose, Thank you for your reply. Where do you find this information? I did a google search on PacletInfo.m and find only two references to this (other than archives of this thread). The two references are: 1) Your package http://homepage.cem.itesm.mx/lgomez/quantum/installation/installation.html 2) A list someone produced of new files downloaded http://aix5doc.zam.kfa-juelich.de/ibmsc/software/news/mathematica_newfile.txt I can find absolutlely nothing on the Wolfram web site about this. So whilst I thank you for the information, I'm reluctant to use a completely undocumented technique. Hans
