If it is just a week or two I'll rather wait. I like what I hear :)
Someone actually told me that I should install teTeX maybe a month ago
when I was running 0.93R6 but then 1.2 came and I tried its TeX instead.
It is better, but not good.

Well... Maybe there should be put together a Debian teTeX package.
The maintainer of the current Debian TeX package maybe should spend his
time helping teTeX instead of his own stuff. But I suppose he's got a
reason not to do so... What is better about Debian TeX, anyone?

Then I will go for teTeX instead.

I tried searching around for teTeX whis morning, and I found a lot of
FTP-sites carrying the files, I also found the maintainer's address and
the mailing-list. BUT do you know if there is a teTeX web-page somewhere,
where some general information, maybe some installation help and useful
links exists? Anyone?
