Mostly build testing. When the experimental buildd network works (ie

I don't insist, and actually I really appreciate all the work you're
putting into this. I was trying to suggest things which would not
increase your workload, for that exact reason. I just thought a mail to
d-d-a saying "we'll be uploading a new texlive to sid, some files have
moved from a package to another" with a list of those moves and
optionally a list of affected packages, so that people can refer to it,
might be a good idea. Then again as you said it's sid and we'll deal...
I think I've made my point so I'll stop annoying you now ;)
