Hi Karl,

Here are some more remarks:

- texmf-dist/tex/latex/interactiveworkbook contains a directory
  interactiveworkbook.sty/ which itself contains two style files. I guess
  this is not wanted.
- eurosans.sty is installed twice in different versions:
  tex/latex/eurofont/eurosans.sty and tex/latex/eurosans/eurosans.sty
- hfoldsty is outdated (1.01 instead of 1.11)
- microtype.sty is missing (a nice replacement for pdfcprot)
- KOMA-Script is outdated
- wrapft.sty is installed twice (different versions).
- acronym is outdated
- contour.sty is outdated.
- framed.sty is installed in a buggy version. Donald has prepared a new,
  better version which he, I believe, have not yet uploaded to CTAN. I am
  not sure what to do.
- hfoldsty is outdated.

There is nothing wrong about it. I have had discussion with Sebastian
because of missing documentation files with many packages. And we have
decided that it could help if the package authors provide a texlive:
target in their Makefiles. But it seems that the standard script does it
job now well.

xml is okay, of course. getversion.tex rather belongs to the source
directory. I will try to avoid it at all in future versions.

Yes, I have just noticed that. I will change it in future, too.

Everything is okay.
