Description of problem:
GNU cal should be a drop-in replacement for "cal", but has more features
such as internationalisation/localisation, support for lots of holidays,
and proper documentation as well.

I think a "gcal" RPM used to be part of PowerTools.
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-01-24 16:26:49 EST
After discussion it seems as if GNU cal is not sufficiently compatible with 
"cal" to replace it, but adding it as a new RPM would be nice.  The binaries 
have different names ("gcal" vs "cal") so this shouldn't be a problem.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2002-01-29 15:34:27 EST
I don't think we can include gcal now, sorry. (This is certainly subject to
change in the future if needed.)
