The TUG 2015 started. In my previous post I wrote, what happens, and some details about my arrival yesterday, and the first evening gathering. About 9 am, the president of TUG, Steve Peter, opened the conference with some introduction words. Let's take a look at the presentations.
The TUG 2015 conference is currently taking place in Darmstadt, Germany, from 20th to 22nd of July. That's the 36th anual meeting of the international TeX Users Group. DANTE e.V. sponsored the conference fee for its members with 50 Euro for each attendee. I'm sure this great sponsoring helped many TeX friends to come.
Arrival The TUG2015 meeting proper started today, but people started meeting up yesterday. I arrived quite late (and indeed later than I’d expected), but a ‘welcome committee’ of TeX-sx regulars were outside the hotel when I got here! It was nice to finally be able to put some faces to the names. Morning one For ... Read more
Je l'avais annoncé il y a quelques mois. Je comptais faire un nettoyage de printemps dans eledmac. Voilà qui est fait ! Eledmac a donc cessé de vivre, au profit de reledmac. Vous trouverez tout prochainement la version sur le CTAN, et bientôt vous pourrez l'installer via les gestionnaires de packages de vos distributions préférées. Il vous faudra alors sans doute adapter un peu votre préambule, en changeant quelques noms de commandes, comme décrit dans le fichier décrivant les étapes de migration. (...) - (r)(e)led(mac/par)

The programme and participant list both look excellent and it will be good to meet several people in person who I’ve only known to date by e-mail. ... Read more

Following the recent move of the tex.ac.uk website to a new home, work has now started on making sure we can continue to improve the FAQ (and the website). The first step of this process has been to add the current sources to GitHub within the official UK-TUG GitHub account. We will be assembling a small team of editors who will have direct access to the official master version of…
The Committee are very happy to announce that the 2015 UK-TUG Speaker Meeting will take place on the 31st of October at Trinity College, Oxford. Attendance at the meeting is free, and a light sandwich lunch is included in the day. To help planning for the day it would be welcome if people hoping to attend could let the us know. At the same time, talk titles are very welcome:…
For many years, one of the core servers for the CTAN network has been located in Cambridge and at least formally been the ‘UK node': tex.ac.uk. Over recent years, the need for multiple core nodes on the network has diminished. At the same time, Robin Fairbairns, who ran the node at Cambridge, has retired leaving the status of the server itself (inside Cambridge University Computing Lab) somewhat up in the…
The UK-TUG website has been restored after a couple of unrelated issues, both of which occurred at around the same time. There are a few oddities we are still fixing, but in general the site should be functional. Please report any problems to the webmaster.
The first upload of new packages after TeX Live 2015 hit unstable. Against my expectations, the bugs didn't come in in the thousands, more or less there were only some fixes necessary in the binary package, which lead to a few updates over the last week. This upload fixes an RC bug (missing replaces), and [...]

Well, there we are, trying to build another round of TeX Live packages for Debian, just to realize that the lintian error that should have been downgraded to warning (or removed) is still around, due to doubts about the license. Ok. Well, anyway, but what I found is even more funny: E: texlive-extra source: license-problem-non-free-img-lenna [...]
