Thanks to Kit Baum, an update to the -adolist- package is available
from SSC. -adolist- manages lists of user ado packages.

To install the update, type

 . ssc install adolist, replace

or use the -adoupdate- command.


ADOLIST SSC
===========

-adolist- now interacts with the SSC archive. For example, type
-adolist ssc- to view the list of available adolists on SSC:

<snip>
. adolist ssc
-----------------------------------------------------------------
http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/0/
Ado package lists
-----------------------------------------------------------------
PACKAGE LISTS you could describe:
    wagegap           Wage gap decomposition packages

DIRECTORIES you could -net cd- to:
    ../
-----------------------------------------------------------------
(type -adolist ssc pklname- for more information on pklname)
<snip>

There is just one package list available yet. You can then click on
"wagegap" in the output above or type -adolist ssc wagegap- to
describe the list:

<snip>
. adolist ssc wagegap
-----------------------------------------------------------------
package list wagegap from http://fmwww.bc.edu/repec/bocode/0
-----------------------------------------------------------------
TITLE
    Wage gap decomposition packages

DESCRIPTION
    This package list comprises ado packages used for the
    decomposition of wage or income differentials between
    groups and related applications.

To install the package list from SSC, then type (or click)
-adolist ssc wagegap, install-.


Call for Contributions
======================

The idea behind -adolist- is that users can share their knowledge
about ado packages. Of course this only works if many users
participate and provide their own package lists.

If you want to make available a package list, compile the package list
(and a help file) using -adolist store- and then send the package list
file (and the help file) to Kit Baum (baum@bc.edu), who will upload
the package list to the SSC archive. Make sure that you use a unique
name for the package list (package lists and packages share the same
namespace). Furthermore, it is sensible to use the -title()- option in
-adolist store- to include a package list title to appear in the table
of contents displayed by -adolist ssc-. You may contact me offlist
(jann@soz.gess.ethz.ch) if you need assistance producing a package
list.

[In case you are interested: Yes, the -wagegap- package list,
including the accompanying help file, was produced by a single call to
-adolist store- with out any post editing of the files.]


Further changes
===============

o -adolist dir- and -adolist describe- now produce output that mimics
  the output from -net from- and -net describe-.

o -adolist describe- now displays subheadings.

o -adolist install/update- now keeps track of packages that
  were on the system prior to installing the package list and,
  by default, -adolist uninstall- does not uninstall such
  packages.

o -adolist install/update- now removes old copies of packages.

o -adolist describe/install- now has a -from()- option to specify
  the location of the package list. Alternatively, include the
  path in the package list name.

o -adolist- should now be robust to paths containing blanks
