I was already considering changing the licence to LPPL or whatever is best
to be distributed with other TeX packages,
Of course you'll ask Peter Williams about that, won't you?

Yes, and he already agreed with the change in the licence. But I'll keep upgrading the package for now and change the license when I change its distribution to the more standard .ins and .dtx files (which is already planned).

Anyway, what should I do to have algorithms installed in sarge's tetex? I would like to deploy it in my current university and let some fellow workers use it without having to install separately.

I have, BTW, created a site at http://algorithms.berlios.de/ for hosting the project. Any comments are highly appreciated.

[On teTeX 3.x]
If I don't forget it, is should contain the same versions as the
official Debian experimental archive.  But I'd rather take that one:

deb http://your.favourite.debian.mirror/debian experimental main

Well, I tried upgrading my (sarge) teTeX to experimental's 3.0-3, but I wasn't that suscessfull. I filed a bugreport and went back to sarge's release, but I can test newer iterations of teTeX 3.0 in some of my systems.

Oh, BTW, reconfiguring tetex-bin 3.0-3 didn't offer me the chance of choose which languages would be supported (like it does in tetex 2.x). Running texconfig as root gave me some segmentation faults when I tried to choose the hyphenation languages/patterns.

Thanks, Rogério Brito.
