Hi Ken (B :),
I didn't realize until seeing this email thread that anything had
changed with respect to context. If there was an announcement about
that, I missed it.
Indeed, I failed to make any explicit announcement about it. Sorry.
I've put a note now on https://tug.org/texlive/bugs.html.
It is briefly mentioned in the TL Guide, but the implications are not
Karl, what do you recommend? Should I build luametatex and upload it?
I have nothing against it, but I'm not sure you will find it
easy/feasible to build, per DavidC.
Is that what builders for other platforms have done?
No. At present, almost all the luametatex binaries are built by Mojca's
build farm. https://dl.contextgarden.net/build/luametatex/main/
I believe the only exception is universal-darwin, which the
indefatigable Dick Koch builds (and signs).
However, if you are able to build a binary, I have no problem installing
it in TL.
I'd also be interested in hearing from distro maintainers how they're
planning to handle this.
Me too :). Probably tldistro at tug.org is the best place for that
discussion. There are distro maintainers not on this list. --thanks, karl.
