    install t3enc.def, hypertex.def, hpdftex.def, and hyperref.sty into

    it is needed in the current tetex environment
  * postinst: check that the jadetex.fmt and pdfjadetex.fmt files were
    actually generated, since texconfig doesn't exit with non-zero status
    on failure.  Consider this a failure condition.  It has been
    determined that this is in fact a limitiation of the upstream
    'texconfig' system employed.  The hacky patch I added here to the
    postinst sould probably be removed for the freeze; for now it's
    probably a good way to chase down problems (closes Bug#25592, Bug#25695)

    capacity exceeded issue in /usr/doc/jadetex/README.capacity_exceeded

    READMEs now shipped

    TeX capacity exceeded.
  * link man page for jadetex-texconfig.1 to texconfig.1

    status was already explicitely ignored (Fixes: Bug#26388).

  * New upstream version.  This is a *significant* change!
    This is a move (back?) from the short-lived makedev that depended on a
    non-free parser to the one that is just a shell script.  We will now be
    more like other Linux distributions, no longer depending on a non-free
