listbib.tex isn't documentation but a file supporting the listbib
shell script and should IMHO be found by kpsewhich and therefore go
This file is a shell script. Should it be executable?
Yes, and in the bin dirs. Also done.
Additionally, the listbib package uses a listbib.bst file which is
neither part of the TeX Live installation nor on CTAN
That's because listbib.doc is also listbib.bst (see comments at the top
of the file). I moved it into TL's bibtex/bst/listbib.
maybe a CTAN maintainer follows this list ...
Indeed, Robin Fairbairns is quite active on this list (thanks Robin :),
but if there had really been a missing file on CTAN, the person to talk
to would have been the package maintainer, since they are the ones who
would need to re-upload it. At least, that would be the first avenue to
pursue. Fortunately, nothing is actually missing in this case.
P.S. to all: I'll be away the next few days. Back online Monday.
