As one of the authors of kotex related packages,
I also eagerly want to upload kotex to CTAN.
There are, however, several issues blocking the upload,
one of which is that some macro files definitely rely on derivatives
of proprietary fonts.

Anyway, I will disscuss with other authors and push forward with
uploading kotex, or probably some part of kotex, to CTAN in due course.
