Dear friends!
A new generation of Debian packages of TeX live are available on the tug
server, as usual
and get it at
 	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ pool/
 	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ pool/

Note: If you had an older version of the packages installed, PLEASE
completely purge these packages before installing the new ones! 
tex-common (>= 0.7) takes over some files from texlive, and for now I
don't care to put Replace fields for texlive into tex-common.

Note 2: The texlive-fontsextra does *NOT* include the stripped down
version of the cm-super fonts, but Suggests the cm-super Debian package.
This package is for now available at
        deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ cm-super/
        deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ cm-super/

Note 3: I forgot to write in the last emails, the new texinfo is still
available at
        deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ texinfo/
        deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ texinfo/

Note 4: I am leaving for vacation NOW! and I will return on 11. September.
>From this sunday on (28.) I won't read any emails and won't work on TeX
live, but I hope to see these packages getting more testing.

Note 5: The 2005.08.24-1 versions are still available at

My TODO list for the version after returning (not including all the
complaints I will get soon):
* Make control scripts set -e or so. Errors!
* uninstall still calls updmap etc even if not installed.
  The probem is that texlive-basic is *deinstalled* and *purged*, but the
  other programs are *only* deinstalled not purged. Then, the postinst
  is called
* why breaks dselect with the texlive-latexextra description (which is
  indeed a bit long)
* make /var/cache/fonts/ls-R writeable???

Changes since 2005.08.21-1:

version 2005.08.27-1 Sat, 27 Aug 2005 16:03:44 +0200

27.08.2005 NP
  * New source version, including up to perforce change #7870
  * fix build dependency on libXaw7-dev | libXaw8-dev
  * Fix generation of formats of texlive-basic. The actual fmt.d files
    are in texlive-basicbin, but the .ini files are in texlive-basic,
    so actually the call to fmtutil should be in the postinst of
    texlive-basic. (Thanks to LUK ShunTim)

26.08.2005 NP
  * Do not include cm-super.tpm, but suggest the debian package cm-super,
    which contains the full set of cm-super fonts. For now locally
    available on tug.

25.08.2005 NP
  * Fix installation of README.Debian-source into all binary packages

version 2005.08.24-1 Wed, 24 Aug 2005 18:10:02 +0200

24.08.2005 NP
  * Everything is build with depot at change #7842
  * Really fix the info problem: Now all the info files are converted at
    install time to unix line endings. Thus also the strange ^M in the
    postinst script install-info commands should be fixed.

23.08.2005 NP
  * New source version, including up to perforce change #7836
    This includes fixed versions of pdftex, mpost, dvipdfmx, and as usual
    several updates to  (La)TeX packages.
  * fixes the dvips.info install problem
  * lm is now included in texlive-basic, so changed conflicts in tpm2deb.cfg
  * generation of /var/cache/font/* and various ls-R files has moved to
    tex-common (>= 0.7), thus also the changed Depends
  * Dependency on tex-common (>= 0.7) also fixes the lambda with all
    languages problem in dumping the format file

22.08.2005 NP
  * Include the included packages and their title in the long description
    of the control files, and generate the control files automatically.

Best wishes
