I mean that people would receive just plain text file what was changed, 
what to do with files, etc. A small sample file for the test would be 
also welcome...

What to do with, e.g., tex/lambda/base/UT1omlgc.fd? Should it be rather
ut1omlgc.fd, as you've described in your manual? Morever, if you could try
the current TDS recommendations (I know, still not perfect), your package
would be more easy to install, as well to incorporate to the current

Well, the best way is to cleaning all files relating omega, lambda
and antomega, and againg refreshing them from CTAN (which should be
the only source for TL, howgh!). I'm ready for doing that, but please
do not beat me if I don't include things not documented or not more 
supported, like those from R. Pournader and A. Syropoulos, etc.

Well, well.. Have you noticed that even TL2004 produced lambda.fmt using
your hyphen.cfg (from antomega)? Anyway (but only after your
explanations), I'm quite sure that antomega should be propagated as
*standard* for all distributions. It is no problem for adding
TEXINPUTS/omega/ocp, as Karl decribed in the other mail...

Ahh, really bad news. Could somebody using aleph comment that?
