I think that TeX on iPad and MacOSX are rather different animals (I use
both MacTeX and TeXPad on OSX and iOS).

There is much bigger difference between TeX on UNIX (including OSX) and iOS
Some people who use iOS do not use OSX and for them this list is alien
We had already protest against posting iPad staff here. Sure if Gary
renames this list, these protests will be unwarranted.

PS Do we need iPad TeX wiki? I can set one
