Just an observation, but maybe the documentation needs updating? It's
pretty poor - if you're honest about it. More so when you take into
account that those using tn5250 will probably be used to IBM's standard
of documentation. The fact the people have to plough though mailing list
archives searching for clues to recurring questions should be enough to
demonstrate something is lacking.

E.g. The README gives tn5250's homepage as a page that doesn't exist,
and the doc dir just indexes up source.

How about a mini-HOWTO that shows new users how to configure the product
to the point where a real 5250 user can seamlessly use tn5250's sessions
without all of the associated fuss of keyboard mapping, fonts, window
size, et al?
