Hello, sorry for not replying earlier, and thanks to Julien and Luc
for their rapid action on this.
I don't think that this is a bug of hevea, for the simple reason that
for me the command \remakesection seems to be an undocumented
feature. The only mention of this command I could find is on
However, AFAICS it is not mentionnend in the official documentation
bundle that is available at http://pauillac.inria.fr/hevea/doc/index.html,
which should be identical to the documentation distributed in the
hevea-doc package [non-free]. I just grepped through versions 1.08 and
1.09 of hevea-doc and could not find any mention of \remakesection.
Frank, are you aware of any other mention of this command, besides
the FAQ cited above? If not I will close the bug report. I agree
that a mention in NEWS.debian would have been useful, but I do
not think that this alone justifies a new upload of the package.
