I remembered that dvi2ps caused problem when we upgraded
It looks the maintainer is not active recently but I found
the upstream has released new version which is based on TL2009.
It is not based on TL2012 but it is much better and much easier
to migrate to TL2012 than the current version.
Anyway, I'll contact the maintainer.

Norbert and all, I'm afraid we should prepare dummy packages
to make upgrade smoothly at some point.
Is it TeXLive packages that build dummy packages?
Of course I'll build dummy package of my packages if necessary.

Yes, we've already communicated successfully and
new beta version is released by the upstream.
But please wait. I believe it might take more time.
