-Eclat stands for Ec2 Command Line Administrator Tool. \ No newline at end of file
+Copyright (C) 2012 Sergey Poznyakoff
+See the end of file for copying conditions.
+* Introduction
+Eclat stands for EC2 Command Line Administrator Tool. It allows you to
+manage Amazon EC2 services from the command line, fast and easy. It does
+not require resource-consuming libraries. It is written in plain C,
+depends only on libraries which are always installed on any decent system,
+and has a tiny memory footprint.
+* Documentation
+None so far. But it will be provided as soon as my time would permit.
+* Building
+The following libraries are needed for Eclat:
+* Curl, available from <http://curl.haxx.se>.
+* Expat, avaliable from <http://www.libexpat.org>.
+To compile, run the usual triplet:
+ ./configure
+ make
+ make install
+For information about the configure script and its options, refer to
+file INSTALL included in the distribution.
+* Bug reporting.
+Send bug reports to <gray+eclat@gnu.org.ua>.
