[texhax] Fwd: Ubuntu Linux

    Does anyone know *why* the Ubuntu distros are so far behind
    in this critical area?

Ubuntu comes from Debian.

Norbert Preining is the main person who packaged TL for Debian.

In 2008, Norbert was too busy working on the general TL infrastructure
to have time to update the Debian packages.  Therefore Debian is still
on TL 2007.

Norbert is doing a lot again for TL 2009, of course, but I think he
hopes to package it for Debian after it's released.

I don't know when TL 2009 will be released.  By the end of the summer?
We'll see.
