+README for addrinfo
+===================
+
+This is still a very early version of addrinfo, please don't use it!
+
+I started building addrinfo a couple of years ago because I wanted an IPv6
+compatible version of ipcalc or similar tool. I did not find very many at the
+time, so I went about building my own, only to lose interest very fast.
+
+In the meantime, there are a bunch of tools that are much more mature and
+provide comprehensive IP calculation utilities. For Python, netaddr [1]_ appears
+quite proficient. A more comprehensive list can be found under [2]_.
+
+So why am I continuing to build addrinfo? As an academic exercise for myself.
+Maybe I will be able to provide more information than other tools, maybe not.
+For my plans on what I want to do, please see the TODO file in this project.
