I have realized that some (La)TeX-to-... conversion tools 
(and other TeX-related software) are not submitted to CTAN, 
not understanding why. The ctan-ann mailing list is a 
straightforward medium for reporting improvements of TeX-related
software submitted to CTAN. You upload your update together with 
a changelog summary, and a few hours later everybody curious 
about advances in using TeX sees it (thanks to a few near to 
too idealistic volunteers).
