# [tex-live] xii and xii-lat

Wed Dec 20 21:42:35 CET 2017

Recently David Carlisle has released his xii-lat.tex file (see TUGboat
38,3) as a follow on from xii.tex. Both of these files are part of
TeXlive but when I tried to process them (by pdftex) they were not
found. Eventually with help from TEX.SE
(https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/407065)  I discovered that they
were under \usr\local\texlive\2017\texmf-dist\doc\plain. I feel that the
TDS should be organized in this case so that pdftex xii will produce
xii.pdf (and similarly for xii-lat or other (La)TeX files of the same
nature).

Perhaps a new category called, say, fun, could be developed for these
kind of files?
