'type-gyr.tex' defines!!! adventor. But the encoding-script is wrong, 
as Thomas has pointed out. 

--- excerpt from type-gyr.tex ---
\definetypescriptprefix [n:adventor][TeXGyreAdventor]
\definetypescriptprefix [f:adventor][ag]

\starttypescript [serif] [pagella,termes,heros,bonum,schola,adventor] [ec,texnansi,cs,el,qx,rm,t5,t2a,t2b,t2c,l7x]

  \definefontsynonym [\typescriptprefix{n:\typescripttwo}-Regular]        [\typescriptthree-q\typescriptprefix{f:\typescripttwo}r]     [encoding=\typescriptthree]

\starttypescript [sans] [heros,adventor] [name]
  \definefontsynonym [Sans]                [\typescriptprefix{n:\typescripttwo}-Regular]

\starttypescript [map] [pagella,termes,bonum,schola,heros,adventor] [all]

I still have some questions:

- A complete (all gyre-fonts) type-script makes sense. Will 'type-
gyr' be fixed, or should I create my own?
- What are the map-files at the gyre-site for?
- Is the second \loadmapfile entry above redundant?
- What is the correct texfont syntax, to install adventors small-caps 
- There are enc-files in the ??dvips?? subdirectory of the font tree:


Should I make use from these files? Will they be found there?
