No. I was looking for someone to say "You fool, that support is already
there inn the 'annotations' branch on svn.gnome.org" or some such. All
I've found about Evince annotations support is

http://live.gnome.org/Evince/Annotations

which has a lot of discussion, a pointer to some code from a SoC 2007
project but no indication as to whether the feature is expected to work
or not in it. I was hoping someone would be able to indicate if it was
worth my time trying out that code, or if there was somewhere
alternative to look.

Anyway, I'm probably hugely off topic now. If anyone has experience with
Free software and PDF annotations I'd love to hear about it, otherwise
I'll try to find some time to build up the SoC work and see what
happens.

J.

Look at okular. It's in lenny.

There's one little problem with okular's annotations: They are not
stored inside the pdf file. So to share annotations you also have to
copy external files around.
I don't remember exactly why, but there are problems which prevent the
okular team from implementing the support to store annotations in the
pdf.
