Hi Jindrich,

While I understand your separate packaging of errata follows upstream, I think
that packaging errata in this way for Fedora needs some discussion. This is a
totally different packaging paradigm - as far as I'm aware there's no precedent
for issuing errata packages rather than updated packages. A far better
alternative IMO is to have finer grained subpackaging of the texlive texmf tree,
such that updates don't replace the whole thing. That of course has other major
advantages, such as allowing smaller tex installs.

Also, to have *two* system managed texmf trees searched is a big change, and
something else that system admins have to think about when they add their own
local texmf trees.

Put more bluntly, while I understand the convenience from a packagers point of
view, this seems like a really ugly way to package.
