Both things I would like to keep AND would like to get updated to the
current status ... I know I may annoy you, but it helps me a lot in
building the Debian packages, as we separate the fmt building calls into
different packages, and only create those which are new.

Hmm, I think I have to check the texmf/fmtutil stuff.

Best wishes

A kind of burglar alarm usage. It is cunningly designed so that it can
ring at full volume in the street without apparently disturbing
anyone. Other types of framlingams are burglar alarms fitted to
business premises in residential areas, which go off as a matter of
regular routine at 5.31 p.m. on a Friday evening and do not get turned
off til 9.20 a.m. on Monday morning.
