I don't know.  I don't dare install something as buggy as the current

Moreover, we don't know how many people have braved the install
problems to test the underlying package.  I fear the underlying
packaging is relatively untested (it certainly wasn't sufficiently
tested by the maintainers).

There is no way to answer this at this point in time.  It could take a
week or three months.  How can anyone predict?  FWIW, If I were the
maintainer it would take more than one month because I don't have that
much spare time.  Hopefully our tetex maintainers are unemployed ...

I strongly feel that the current package is totally unacceptable for a
stable release. ...
