Quite right.

I'd suggest this:

  This package contains the Sendmail Installation and Operation Guide (PDF),
  text files containing configuration documentation, plus a number of
  scripts and tools for use with Sendmail.

A couple of other quick points:

 * the "README.redhat" (newconfig patch) describes changes that happened for
   sendmail 8.12.x back in July 2002 and reflects what is now standard
   practice in Sendmail installations. I wouldn't have thought it was
   needed any more.

 * README.sendmail doesn't appear to contain anything of use to people
   installing the package.

Robert, do you have any objections to this package being approved now?
