Re: [Texmacs-dev] Texmacs orphaned in Debian/Ubuntu

I did a little search and found the following list for "major
distributions" which looked somewhat unbiased:

Mandriva Linux
Fedora Core
Debian GNU/Linux
Gentoo Linux

now knoppix is a derivitave of debian, so getting into debian testing
gets you into knoppix.
ubuntu is also a derivitave of debian, but they seem to be forking, so
may need to be addressed seperately.

I'd probably add red hat to the list too.  (even though i've never used it)

One possibility would be to focus the "campaigning" to cover these
distributions, plus a "support whatever distribution you personally
use" campaign. :)

OK, cool; I think that you already do have write access to the CVS?

Good question. Anyway, most distributions don't support TeXmacs, I think.
Maybe, a good definition of a major distribution would be a distribution
that at least one person on this list has already tried ;^)

Best wishes, Joris
