... which doesn't reflect well what was actually done in this tarball
(at least compared to the last 2008 release).

Yes, of course!

It would be fine if someone steps up and helps Ross (who is still
responsive and is considering including the "2012" changes into "his"
lastex2html) to work on this.

Unfortunately, there was no notice by anyone when and why a release was
done. Just need to maintain what we accept into Debian for the next few
years, and trying to prevent a mess caused by random diverging releases
by different people.
