Hmm, you are sure that nothing else changes?

Ahhhh bingo... this makes some things clear, especially why it never
happened on my system, because I have this installed since some time.

Now that I look through the code of jadetex I see many things we could
simplify at all: First note that ALL versions in Debian are -7.1 (except
oldstable, which I would just forget, or?)

So we can assume that the status we have is the status as in unstable.

Under this assumption we can remove the full preinst/postinst/postrm
code stuff and only add a postinst
call (btw Frank, we could add this to the dh_installtex which already
calls update-updmap, update-language, update-fmtutil, it does not cost
anything to call update-texmf, too????).

The rest would be added by dh_installtex.

Any comments from one of you two?

Best wishes
