[sorry for a possible double-post, I didn't see
my first post show up on the list]
is there an option for tlmgr
to restore a backup-ed package into
the TEXMFLOCAL directory?
my question is motivated by this:
when a package turns into
obsolescence or other problems and is
removed from the TexLive distribution,
and a user absolutely wants to resurrect
it without having to download from CTAN
and follow all the installation steps (fonts...)
a simple way is to
restore the backup done at the time of removal
from texlive distribution
but this puts it in yyyy/texmf-dist
and what then when yyyy becomes yyyy+1?
so restoring from a back-up to TEXMFLOCAL
(or another TDS compliant tree) would be nice,
perhaps it is already possible, I did'nt see how.
