Linuxdoc-SGML clashes / dependencies with TeX packages
[ linuxdoc-sgml is what Matt Welsh developed for HOWTO and LDP book
maintainers to keep to a standard style, and produce HTML, PS, ASCII,
I'm trying to upload linuxdoc-sgml-1.2-1.deb, but ftp.debian.org is not
accepting ftp connections at the moment. Anyway, I thought I'd raise a
few points I found while building the package...
linuxdoc-sgml.sty, qwertz.sty, null.sty and epsf.tex are required by
this package for its LaTeX support. The first two are installed in
/usr/lib/texmf/tex/latex by my postinst script. The second two are
already on my Debian system, in one form or another.
Nils, could you also include an empty null.sty file in the TeX
distribution? In the meantime, I'm touching one in
/usr/lib/texmf/tex/plain in postinst and removing it in my prerm.
I don't see the value in adding an epsf.sty file if there's no dvips
package installed, so I'm going to make linuxdoc-sgml promote dvips to
a recommended package, along with LaTeX.
Any advice, ideas?
