I've tried texmfstart ctxtools --update yesterday with the same result
on Fedora linux and it didn't start automagically :(
It was missing $TEXMFLOCAL defined. Should ctxtools read texmf.cnf where
this variable is definied or should it be defined somewhere else? It is
a general question. For the moment I've defined it locally.
BTW, it is confusing if old texexec says:
warning : use 'texmfstart texexec' instead
and Hans has created stubs which are called the same so finally one
should use texexec (new one, which calls texmstart). What is a prefered
command to refer to (mailing list, contextgarden)? texexec or texmfstart?
still be distributed?
(and others new*.rb sripts) still be distributed if it significantly
differs from newer
