No, *I* will edit it, since *I* am maintaining this page ;-)

Aehm, the "Introduction" states:
	Norbert Preining さんが,ptexlive や TeX Live 2011 への追加日本語パッチ (in e-pTeX wiki) の成果を収めた TeX Live 2011 用の tlptexliveリポジトリを製作されています.

Isn't that clear enough?

ANyway, no harm done. I will add a paragraph warning that this
is not the official repository, and that binaries might not work
on as many combinations as the original binaries.

For me no problem.

No problem, I only need:
dvipdfmx, eptex, makejvf, mendex, pbibtex, pdvitomp, pdvitype, platex, pmpost, ppltotf, ptex, ptftopl, pxdvi, pxdvi-xaw, wovp2ovf, upbibtex, updvitype, uppltotf, uptex, uptftopl.

these ones if you have. The pxdvi probably not, but all other should
be fine.

Best wishes

forgotten, and which can therefore now be used only for dropping down
people's backs as a cure for nose-bleeds.
