Dear friends!
Close to a month has passed since the last version of TeX live for
Debian occured on the tug server. Here is a new incarnation!
Current Version: 2004.05.10.13-1

As usual, see 
and get it at
 	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ pool/
 	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ pool/

Changes are mostly under the hood, nothing fancy. I tweaked the postrm
scripts to behave in a more standard way, ie not calling everything
twice (on remove and on purge), same with postinst.
I checked the fmt generation stuff to work even if someone only installs
texlive-pdfetex without -latex. Expanded the infrastructure to check
for double included tpm packages (and break out if there are). Included
some patches and links for man pages. Included some lintian override

I have install-remove-install-purge tested some combinations of packages
(all are not possible), and will continue doing this.

Furthermore, I will start trying to install over a tetex3 and see what
happens. Also the other way round.

As usual, the log files of the creation process are in 
The file lintian.log shows that the errors/warnings are getting less.
The two errors now present are rubbish, lintian is stupid on this. I
have to file a bug report on this.

Other thing:
	is in Debian/sid
	is in Debian/sid

Concerning font packages: also this version includes the lm fonts, but
as soon as teTeX3 and the new lm fonts hit Debian, I will exclude the
tpm package and Depend on the Debian package (as it happens already with
cm-super). On similar line, I am in discussion with maintainers of other
TeX packages to get them compatible not only with teTeX3, but also
TeX live, allowing a better reuse of them.

Please give the packages a test if you are running sid.
