RE: Shed light on Tetex packages

Hi Jan,

first of all: Thank you for clearing things up.

1) I was not sure about the tetex package itself (cleared now, although it seems now, that is is not different to tetex-tiny at all)
2) the problem is, that some of the optional packages reference tetex-tiny and others reference tetex-base fpr dependency. Therefore you might end with an installation of both alternative packages without *explicitly* selecting them both. I assume now, that the dependency references tetex-tiny unless the optional package needs the full stuff from tetex-base.

OK. This will help definately tetex dummies as me :)
