Many thanks for that. As I see, Karl is working on packaging.

I see tex/contex/sample/ instead of test/ and I think that it should be 
moved to doc/context/sample/

Shouldn't that go rather to respective /bin/<platform> 
as for running they must be in PATH?
We already have in bin/<platform>/ other scripts/.bat files like
ctxtools, pstopdf and much more... Ahh, as I see, scripts/context/stubs/xx/
contains duplicates of what we've already had in bin/<platform>

All the best,
