目標1. 分岐したDebian版とFedora版のマージ
  長らくメンテナンスされてきたのは Debian 版だが, Fedora 版は原作者 Yusuke Tabata 氏のヴァージョンから fork しなおしている。修正点も相互に異なっていて、どちらかへの片寄せは簡単ではない。

  | ブランチ         | 元のリポジトリ                                             |
  | ---------------  | -----------------------------------------------------      |
  | upstream_master  | https://salsa.debian.org/debian/anthy/  'master' branch    |
  | anthy-unicode    | https://github.com/fujiwarat/anthy-unicode/  'main' branch |

目標2. ライセンスの整理
  Debian 版には GPLv3, LGPLv3, LGPLv2 の 3つの LICENSE ファイルが添付されているが、トリプルライセンスなのかどうか意図が不明。このファイルの下の方, Licensing セクションとも矛盾している。Fedora 版は LGPLv2 と GPLv2 の mix になっている。
  元々のヴァージョンでは, Anthy には LGPLv2 が適用され, 辞書ファイルである alt-cannadic には GPLv2 が適用されていた。これを雑に一つのパッケージにまとめていたのが不味い。Debian 版はさらに混乱して、誤って (LGPL ではなく) GPLv3 を添付したのだろう (でないと下の記述と合わない).
  現代の流儀だと, Anthy パッケージと, alt-cannadic から Anthy 形式の辞書を作るパッケージの二つに分割し、前者には LGPL を適用するのが意図をきちんと反映することになる。Debian 由来のコードを含むので, LGPLv3 (LGPLv2 ではなく) か.

目標3. Windows へのポーティング
  GUI ではないのにべったり UNIX に依存している. ポータブルなコードに修正する。
  -> ビルドは通る。テスト未了.

ライセンスもコードの品質も正直微妙だが、他方, Canna は古すぎて現代の環境でコンパイルすら難しい。Anthy ぐらいしか選択肢がない。トホホ


  
What's Anthy?
=============

Anthy is a library for Japanese Kana-Kanji conversion, targeted for
Japanese text input.

See following page for Anthy development:
	http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianAnthy
	http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-anthy/anthy.git;a=summary


What's New?
===========

See the file NEWS for new features and other user-visible changes in
recent versions of Anthy.


Installation
============

The file INSTALL says how to build and install Anhty on your system.


Configuration 
=============

System administrator is expected to set up following three variables
in anthy-conf.in (usually it's under /etc/anthy directory).

    Variable name  Example                         # Comment
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    ANTHYDIR       /usr/share/anthy                # Directory 
    DIC_FILE       /usr/share/anthy/anthy.dic      # Dictionary file
    ZIPDICT        /usr/share/anthy/dic/zipcode.t  # Zipcode file


Anthy Dictionary (anthy.dic)
============================

Here is a figure to explain how Anthy Dictionary (anthy.dic) is
generated.

   depgraph/*.depword
   depgraph/conjugate.table
    ---[depgraph/mkdepgraph]---> anthy.dep (1)

   mkworddic/{extra.t,compound.t,adjust.t,utf8.t,udict},
   alt-cannadic/{gcanna.ctd,gcannf.ctd,gtankan.ctd,g_fname.t}
    ---[mkworddic/mkworddic]---> anthy.wdic (2)

   "initial anthy.dic"
   corpus/corpus.?.txt
    ---[calctrans/{proccorpus,calctrans}]---> corpus_info (3-1)
    					      weak_words  (3-2)

      calctrans/{corpus_info,weak_words} (3-1,3-2)
       ---[calctrans/calctrans]---> anthy.cand_info (3)
       				    anthy.trans_info (4)
				    anthy.corpus_array (5)
				    anthy.corpus_bucket (6)
      				    anthy.weak_words (7)

         (1) depgraph/anthy.dep
         (2) mkworddic/anthy.wdic
         (3) calctrans/anthy.cand_info
         (4) calctrans/anthy.trans_info
         (5) calctrans/anthy.corpus_array
         (6) calctrans/anthy.corpus_bucket
         (7) calctrans/anthy.weak_words
          ---[mkanthydic/mkfiledic]--->anthy.dic

Note that we need "initial anthy.dic" to generate anthy.dic, that's
because 'proccorpus' uses Anthy Dictionary to parse text input.

Anthy library is released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General
Public Licence 3 (or later), i.e., LGPLv3+.  See the file COPYING.LIB

History
=======

Anthy project was hosted at SourceForge.JP.

	http://anthy.sourceforge.jp/
	http://anthy.sourceforge.jp/cgi-bin/hiki/hiki.cgi

Since February 2009, development at there stopped.  Bug fixes and
feature requests was just floating around.

In May 2010, NIIBE Yutaka <gniibe@fsij.org> arranged Git repository at
git.debian.org, put some of released versions of Anthy and Debian
packaging code into the repository, and took over the development
lead.  At alioth.debian.org, pkg-anthy project was created for Anthy
development and Debian packaging for Anthy and related packages.
