I posted this on <news://comp.text.tex>, and someone suggested that I
send the message to the tex-live mailing list.
So here's my thought:
Would it be impractical to supply texlive-en.pdf formatted for A4 paper
as used by most of the world including me rather than the currently
supplied US letter formatting (21.6 x 27.9 cm paper size reported here
by my pdf viewer), as used only in the USA AFAIK?
"In Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile and the Philippines, despite the
ISO standard having been officially adopted, the US letter format is
still in common use."
P.S. I've re-sent this because it appeared not to get to the tex-live
mailing list first time around. Difference is that I'm sending this
from the email address which I used to sign up to tex-live mailing list.
