Mac stuff on TeX Live

Hi Paul,

My apology for the delayed response, things have been hopping. Below is a
note from Sebastian in response to our queries about the Mac version. We do
distribute one, however it may not be exactly what you are looking for. If
we are able to do it through TeXLive, it will be all (or mostly) volunteer.
If you can raise funds to help these overworked folks, that would be mighty
nice. Or, if you know people that might help, that would be even better!
Feel free to respond directly to the list with any ideas
you have.

I very much like your ideas about publishing a list of the latest
plug-ins/addons/etc in TUGboat. With your permission, I will forward your
note to our publications committee.  Would you be willing to compile the
list, and edit it moving forward?

Thanks for your note. Please let me know what you think.

Take care,

Subject:  Mac stuff on TeX Live

Does anyone want to volunteer to completely look after the
systems/macintosh section of TeX Live? Currently it has CMacTeX, no
more no less. Since I have (almost) never used TeX on a Mac, I don't
have any feeling for whether this is good or bad, or could be improved.
