Package: tex-common
Version: 0.37
Severity: wishlist

In section 2.4 of TeX-on-Debian it is stated that a user can add a
texmf.cnf file in TEXMFCONFIG. Please make clear that this file is under
$TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/, not under $TEXMFCONFIG/, since references to the
system texmf.cnf are mostly made by /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf and only once
by /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf.

Please make clear that the first updmap.cfg (fmtutil.cnf, language.dat
resp.) file found is used by updmap (fmtutil, tex? resp.), that all of
them are not merged like the texmf.cnf are, and that a user (not only an
administrator) can thus actually disable some settings. The man pages of
update-updmap, update-fmtutil and update-language  could also possibly
benefit from this piece of information.

To improve the presentation I moreover suggest that you move the
information regarding user settings to a new subsection 2.4.3, after the
system-wide settings have been presented.
