I will point out that there has been some discussion in this area and
plans formed, but for some bizarre reason the discussion happened on
the rel-eng list and not anywhere where most people would notice.
Look for the thread "TeX Live 2008/9 packaging and you" at
What I took away from reading (but not being able to participate in)
that discussion is that our texlive* packages are going to be split up
and that the package review team is going to have an astonishing
amount of work to do.

Writing those is part of the proposed process.

Doing something about that is part of the proposed process.

And that's what's proposed.

I don't personally care much about TeX but I have to provide a proper
TeX installation to my users, so I'll be happy to help where I can.
