Hi Paul,

    "make check" doesn't get very far:

Nope.  The make check stuff dates back 15 years to when I was still
putting together minimal distributions, and Thomas probably kept it
working with teTeX (don't know for sure).  It won't work in the context
of TL.

At present, there is no useful testing :(.  (I tried setting up some
infrastructure for it a couple years ago but no one came forward to
help, so I moved on to other things.)

    As a side note, it would be useful if the source tarball's name
    included the package name and version number (even if that is just the
    year).  Maybe this could be done for the 2008 version?

Yes, we'll do that for this year's release (among other such things,
like not just releasing iso's).
