The overlongish texlive entries
if you look at
you will notice that you need several PgDown (15 at my screen) to reach the
next entry in our table. IMHO this sucks.
There are several ways out and I wonder which you like best.
1. The Meta-Package Reorganisation solution
Well, the texlive packages are only suggested in the med-bio
package and perhaps it is broken to have Recommends and
Suggests listed equally in the list above - but perhaps even
the suggests is wrong here. What do you think about a meta
med-typesetting or med-publishing
This would have the side effect that users will not be confusded
by TexLive entries in the Biological section and also there is no
really good reason why we suggest it in med-bio but not in med-bio-dev,
med-imaging or whatever.
This solution (which I kind of like) does not really help against
the longish entry, but kind of moves it away to a place where it is
not really confusing for users.
2. Talk to the Debian TeX Maintainers
a) Please find a way to cut the overlongish description.
b) Think about splitting the package into several packages.
We could do this in any case - perhaps they like the suggestion.
3. Just fix the Symptom solution
We could Replace all lines following line 20 (for instance)
of the long description by "... [more]" featuring a link to the package
4. Other ideas
All solutions could be done in parallel and there is no real conflict,
but I'm actually keen on hearing your opinion about the meta package solution.
