the same one on ctan? i presume not.
that's not a coherent bundle. it's a mish-mash of things that may or
may not be necessary for a release, all inconsistently named. what
fonts, for example? what additional packages?
if there was an identifiable bundle, i would have it on ctan, and karl
wouldn't need to ask.

but jindrich only built musixflx for two architectures (ix86, x64).
would the 18 images that tl already has work with current musixtex suffice?

and since i don't have a working means of mirroring the directory into
ctan, the only chance ctan has of keeping up _is_ via a mailing list.
(though i don't recognise the name of that one.)
my assumption has always been that no-one cares any longer about the
ctan copy, since werner died. which is why tl is out of date (the ctan
directory is a mess) and why jindrich therefore had to package
perhaps it would be better to move all of the ctan musi* trees to
obsolete/, and for me to forget about it?
