Re: HELP: [Bug#122501: latex2html: should depend on gs for pstoimg]

Thank you,

I think a lot of documents need pstoimg and nowadays a lot of people
just use plain apt. Upgrading gs from recommends to depends should be
ok. Most people who have tex system running would have gs anyway.



Once in debian galaxy, I heard Robert Bihlmeyer say
