So, what to do?
I'd propose to upload another tetex-base Debian package containing
the trivial fix. That would not fix the license statement in the
.orig.tar.gz. However as fancybox is free according to the DFSG we
shouldn't care that much. We should note that the license statement
in the orig.tar.gz differs from that one in the .deb and are done
If everybody agrees. Atsuhito: this is the patch for patch-tmp. Would
you be so kind to do the upload then? Frank made no changes in CVS
between 16th of March and the crash (all that should be in 2.0.2c-7).
If there were nothing between the crash and 6th of April that should
be the only change.
