Hi Ralph, hi Karlin,

sorry for the late reply. At least summer break started today !!

Basically updating the LSR is done like:

(1) Download LSR, apply convert-ly and try to compile all snippets
with most recent stable, i.e. 2.20.0
(2) Find problems and fix them
(3) Work together with LSR-admin: he will update LSR to use current
stable, negotiate how the updated snippets will reinserted.
(4) Where possible insert snippets from Documentation/snippets/new
into updated LSR

The whole process is explained more detailed in

(2) and (4) can be done snippet by snippet
At any rate, I don't expect much work with (2). Earlier this year
Werner did a lot clean up and before I had to stop I cleared most (but
not all) other problems. I posted about those remaining ones, perhaps
I can find the links again...
Ofcourse some more snippets arrived in the meantime...

I'll have a look later this week.


Thanks,  Harm -

I'll see what I can do. Please don't hold your breath. I'm sort of up to my ears at the moment, but I'll take a closer look and try to make a start as soon as I can catch my breath.

All the best,
