PAD is the Portable Application Description, and it helps authors provide product descriptions and specifications to online sources in a standard way, using a standard data format that will allow webmasters and program librarians to automate program listings.
The GNU MCU Eclipse Plug-ins PAD file is publically available in the project Git.
How to edit
Use the online AppVisor
Unfortunately it does not support long URLs and the GitHub Release URL cannot be entered.
The old solution was PADBuilder.com.
How to publish
AppVisor can directly publish the file, after validation.
