Hi Juergen,

Thanks for all your efforts.  

    jura                       collection-langgerman (really?)

It's not really worth a long debate IMHO, but given that the package is
only useful for people who speak German, I think it's better (ie, less
likely to be missed) in langgerman than anywhere else.

In the alternative, there's an argument that it could go in
collection-publishers, where other thesis-type packages are included.

But finally, I don't really care.  If you feel strongly it should go in
collection-humanities, I don't mind.
    gb4e		- not in tpms?, but available on CTAN

It dates from 1995.  Looking at the files, the authorship/legal
situation seems rather confused (not surprisingly), so I'm a bit
reluctant to add it.

    pst-jftree	- in collection-pstricks

I don't think there's any point in moving any pstricks (sub)packages out
of collection-pstricks.  I don't really want to split it into core
pstricks and added pst-packages, and without that, all pstricks packages
would be included.

    fwlw            - not in TL

fwlw.sty is apparently one file, and it's in
texmf-dist/tex/latex/ltxmisc in TL.  ltxmisc is a confusing area, not
worth the time to deal with now.

    dialogue        - not in TL 

dialogue is part of the frankenstein package, which has never been
included in TL for various reasons.

    plari           - not in TL  

Added now.

    pst-node	- not in TL?, but in the TeX Catalogue
    pstcol		- not in TL, not in the TeX Catalogue
    psfrag		- not in TL?, but in the TeX Catalogue

All of these are in TL.  And psfrag has nothing to do with the
humanities in particular, as far as I know.

    cm-lingmacros   - not in TL, not in the TeX Catalogue

For the packages not on CTAN, the first step is to get them uploaded
there, which means trying to contact the author.  Feel free ... :).
