Hi all!

Just a short update: I have uploaded some packages in version
2005.09.15-2 fixing some problems:
* at removal time there are some problems because the map link is
  deleted prior to the removal of the updmap program, which then is
  called and bails out.
* installing lang* calls fmtutil-sys --byhyphen, even if texlive-latex
  is not installed. This version makes the language packages depending
  on texlive-latex, but next versions will do something different, ie
  checking with kpsewhich for language.dat before calling fmtutil.

As we are coming closer to a release, for the next round of packages
there will be the following changes (partial list):
* new maintainer adress, an alioth mailing list
* actually build from source and not from source.development
* (probably) new version numbering. I think I will start numbering the
  packages as follows:
	2005-n for packages build from a full release (n being the
		debian release number)
  and later ones
	2005.MM.DD-n for packages build latex on.
  Neil: Please comment on the naming proposal, is this ok?

Best wishes
