I'm glad to see that fink is following Gerben's release, even if it is a
little later.  I hope that as things stabilize more, Fink can get more
up-to-date, because it is extremely useful to be able to install software
using fink when administrating many MacOS X machines.

I know that everyone has their own wish list, but I'd just like to echo
the sentiment that tetex is a very important release to have available for
MacOS X (either from Gerben or Fink).  The lab where I work (MIT AI lab)
has settled on tetex as a standard latex distribution for the lab's
heterogenous network, and I imagine that many other sites are the same.
