Hi all,

I'm sending some information on TeXLive feature status for F8:

Version of 0.9 is now available via the yum repo for i386 and x86_64:


just install it to /etc/yum.repos.d/ and yum install texlive (and texlive-latex).

The new packages contain updated xpdf-3.02 from upstream to fix CVE-2007-3387,
pdftex no more links statically with libstdc++, xdvi.xaw3d is now part of
texlive-xdvi and contains other packaging fixes that mostly affects upgrading
from tetex.

The new texmf packages contain packaging fixes, it obsoletes tetex-eurofont and
tetex-tex4ht as it's now part of TeXLive. We can add tetex-eurofont and tetex-tex4ht
maintainers to comaintainer list so that they can maintain it in TeXLive if they
are interested. TeXLive packages does not conflict with any other tetex-* package
in Fedora.

License audit is now in progress, currently finished for texlive-texmf and some
license changes are discussed upstream.

And yes, we are still looking for a reviewer ;-) Don't fear it, it doesn't bite.

Here are SRPMS:

and here SPECs:

Relevant bugs are 229180, 242416 and 229182.
