I found that the last additions to bugs.html are rather appropriate
for the new release documentation. TL2003 as it was mastered and 
distributed is somehow in a half-way of TDS recommendations.

On TL2003 they are _still_ inside dvips directory. Only global map
files are built by updmap in fonts/map/

If the user has to do all the above, texmf.cnf should be also changed.

Sorry, not yet true... Eh, yes, true, but only on p4 depot, thus
not appropriate for TL2003.
