sorry, but _all_ files in that directory have the LPPL.
_that_ should be the argument.
Herbert, sorry, I don't agree. It's the same as TFM files for a nonfree
For those who don't agree with this cutoff (and I know there are many
such people), you are free to make your own TL derivative including
acrotex and anything else you want.
Or if there is a consensus among TL "stakeholders", whomever they might
be, against the philosophy (which I doubt), I will gladly leave the
project to others and work on a different free TeX distribution project.
P.S. There's also a practical reason: all the acrotex stuff is next to
impossible to have a scripted install. Even if it all worked with (say)
xpdf, I would not be interested in working on it. There is nothing that
says TL has to include every free TeX-related package written by anyone
