Bug#358695: ITP: latex-utils -- utilities for LaTeX/xfig

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Vincent Danjean <Vincent.Danjean@ens-lyon.org>

* Package name    : latex-utils
  Version         : 2.1.2
  Upstream Author : Vincent Danjean <Vincent.Danjean@ens-lyon.org>

  Description     : utilities for LaTeX/xfig

 This package provides a Makefile to compile LaTeX documents (in ps or pdf),
 latex packages to easily include xfig figures in LaTeX documents and various
 scripts help the Makefile to correctly and easily handle its job.
 One great interrest of this package is that it automatically track most of the
 dependencies of the LaTeX document. We should just have to create a Makefile
 with the single line 'include LaTeX.mk'

Additional notes:
This software differs from latex-mk (that has recently enter the debian
archive) in two points :
1) it allows to easily manage .fig files from latex documents
  (ie \includegrpahics{foo.fig})
2) the Makefile fragment automatically tracks the dependencies (bib
  files, included files, figures, ...). There is no need to setup and
  maintain Makefile variables.

You can find the current version of the debian package on my web page:
Of course, the /usr/share/bug/latex-utils/control will be removed before
the package will be uploaded (this file is here so that people that are
already using the package can use reportbug)

  Best regards,

  I would appreciate any help to improve my description as I am not a
native english speaker.
