Currently I am working on the script for checking files.

The user interface is a little unclear, e.g.:
* How to find texmf trees/TL root (command line option, ...)?
* What to do with programs that are not part of TL?

Then I want to go back to the script for consistency checking
(unique constraints, empty directories, ...).
* (Of course checks for empty directories are more easy
  without .svn directories -- I am using the rsync method.)
* (The script doesn't include transitive empty directories,
  that are directories that would be empty if empty subdirectories
  would be removed == directories that have only directories
  as descendants.)

Some kind of free licence is fine with me.

As timeline I want to finish the scripts at this weekend.

Yours sincerely
