Re: Release Goal Proposal: texlive-transition


I wonder why nobody answered to this - when and/or how will it be
decided whether this is a release goal?

I've just noticed one argument in favor of keeping an alternative
Depends on tetex-* which I've already encountered, and that is "It would
allow easier backports".  However, I don't think it's valid any more,
since texlive is available in etch, and most TeX add-on packages already
work well with it.
