This package builds on F8, but still needs a fair bit of work, and is
not yet review ready. However, I wanted to get it out in the open
early to get feedback. Would welcome all and any hep.

What I have done:
* Sun Jan  6 2008 Jonathan G. Underwood <jonathan underwood gmail com>
- 22.84.13-1
- Initial package based on the texlive.spec by Jindrich Novy
- Updated to latest upstream xdvik and Japanese xdvik
- Reviewed all patches relating to xdvi in texlive.spec and cherry picked
  those that are still needed
- Reworked the patch to allow building of xdvik and pxdvik

What still needs to be done:
Currently this builds against the bundled kpathsea library sources in
the tarball. We should be building against the kpathsea(-devel) packages
instead. Lots of missing Requires and BuildRequires. Needs building in Mock
for devel and rpmlint checking. And testing lots.
