Dear Laurent,

on Debian we got a bug report, but it applies the same way to TeX Live
upstream version:

----- End forwarded message -----

Since we cannot distribute the file proba.sty as long as it looks like
this we would have to remove it from TeX Live for the release of 2008.

Could you please upload a new version with either a fixed header which
and a statement that it is licensed under your choosen (hopefully free)
license, or upload proba.dtx and proba.sty together to CTAN.

Thanks a lot and all the best
