Hi Jacques,

Sounds reasonable.

Sorry, I cannot give a crashcourse on github actions. But you have the
tex files ready, I would suggest
- using docker action
- use one of the docker images provided by island of tex
- use the docker image to compile the files

That makes it easier since you don't have to make installations.

Best regards
