a) bin-pdftex.tpm contains 2 new items in <TPM:BinPatterns> (altpdfaleph
and simpdftex) not propagated to specific platforms
Yes, I know. I fixed that after building the images but didn't think it
was worthwhile to rebuild them right away. No one cares ...
b) plnfss.tpm: DocFiles lists some missing files
I don't understand how either of these problems could have happened.
Can't debug at this point since you fixed them :).
There is no limit on directory nesting as far as I know.
cured (change #8008 submited).
Thanks. Rebuilding images now.
-- install-tl.sh: VARTEXMF is now TEXMFSYSVAR, anyway VARTEXMF still works
for that script (backward compatibility ??)
No, that is one backward compatibility I did not intend :). I tried to
change VARTEXMF to TEXMFSYSVAR, but it seems I did a rather incomplete
job. Will review it. Thanks.
-- lambda generating failed: !Omega capacity exceeded
(seems that main memory size is too small for lambda)
I don't understand. Neither lambda nor omega has changed since last
year, that I can recall. Why should it be out of memory now?
Can you find out what main_memory size is needed?
(No, Sebastian, I don't think we should just let it stay broken. :)
Ps. Karl, thanks for cleaning all .ini files
Thomas is the one who disabled pdftex-dvi.tex. I continue to disagree
with these repeated characterizations of "broken", "crippled", "buggy",
"hard to program", etc. But let's not go there :).
I think that we're both beaten :) on the way
to the proper and satisfying most users direction ;-)
I think you're right :).
