[tex-live] Debian TeX -- new packages

Hi all!

The Debian TeX Maintainer Team has uploaded the first set of packages of
TeX Live 2007 to Debian/experimental, and at the same time they are
available from the www.tug.org server.

We ask people using Debian to try these packages out, they survived all
my tests and quite a lot of documents I tried out, but YMMV.

After Etch is released these (or follow-up packages will go into
Debian/unstable and later testing).

Ok, here are the directions, ie /etc/apt/sources stanzas

For TeX Live:
	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ tl2007/
	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ tl2007/

Some stuff has been factored out of TeX Live as it is already present in
the Debian archive, here are further stanzas which might help:

For lmodern 1.01:
	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ lmodern/
	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ lmodern/

For latest ConTeXt (ATM 2007.03.19-1):
	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ context/
	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ context/

For luatex snapshots:
	deb http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ luatex/
	deb-src http://www.tug.org/texlive/Debian/ luatex/

All these packages are uploaded to experimental, but some packages have
to go through the new queue, as they contain new binary packages
(texlive-xetex, -humanities, -science).

Best wishes
