unfortunately, we do not have good information about that.  we just
know there are some cases. Art Ogawa can point you at Bernard Gaulle
and Aladdin Software, two known cases. We'd want to see their
agreement, or remove the packages

i think we'd ask you to include a very clear statement on the book and
CD that the CD was provided by the TeX Users Group at cost, is not
being  sold by O'Reilly, and that no profit is being made from it. But
I'd prefer Art Ogawa to agree some woring there

even if no packages are removed, i'd rather do you an update

Fabrice, can we work in the next couple of weeks to make a new
snapshot anyway, TL4b? with your latest fpTeX. most importantly, I'd
need you to make a new InstallShield release (no time to consider any
changes in it)

yes, I'd make an ISO 9660 image of the CD available for you

for the end of June, we need to hurry, unless we just copy the
existing CD. what do other people think?
