Dropped the CCs because I believe everybody reads dev-context

I agree with you (for the subset of users that are linux users, with
a debian-based system). For the other linux users, I've been thinking:
would it be possible to make rpm packages from the debian packages in
an automated fashion, somehow?

Meanwhile, we should warn (put on the wiki) that people on a
platform that does not have an installed pdftex 1.40 yet,
should  not attempt to run ctxtools --update.

I am thinking MikTeX & MacTeX here. And all context-minimal and
gwtex users should update the entire distribution completely.
