Hi Ralf, Karl, all,

Ok, I have these emails marked as NEW (or OLD but unread) since some
time, now I want to get rid of them.

(Karl answered: in psnfss)

Do we have to do anything on this front for now? I ask here on two
- TeX Live:
	should we start NOW a repackaging effort as Frank pointed out
	some time ago, or do we leave everything like it is?
	fpl/utopia now have license/readme in TL.

- Debian:
	do we have to do something besides tagging bugs with
	fixed-upstream and wait for TL2008/9 to come to Debian?
	Should we include the README-utopia and LICENSE-utopia file
	in Debian for the 2007 packages? Now?

Thanks a lot and all the best
