First paragraph of doc.html: "This document lists links to all HTML and PDF
files  [...]". There is no PDF nor HTML documentation for those packages.
Anyway, doc.html is automatically generated, so we won't adjust it manually, but
if you have suggestions to improve the logic, they are welcome. (The point with
selecting PDF and HTML is to try to avoid cluttering the document with
irrelevant links.)

Were do we find it on CTAN? As a user, I wasn't able to locate it, except in
encguide.pdf (section A.2) and at the end of the German version of lshort (more

source2e.pdf. However, as a user, I would appreciate a separate, user-oriented
document about textcomp. I guess we should ask the latex team...

Present in ltxmisc. Arguably, ltxmisc should be split in individual packages,
