Hi Alex,

The simple answer to your question would be to use this page:

http://www.ctan.org/upload/ <http://www.ctan.org/upload/>

BUT, the MISSING modules or packages are so-called third party!
It should be the responsibility of the AUTHORS, to upload the to CTAN!

Also, e.g cmscbf and cmttbf are no longer needed in mkiv! They are for use with

Furthermore, you should concertrate on using ONLY MKIV! Especially,
since your audience seem to be introductory.  MKII is frozen and IMHO

I would suggest that you point them to the Standalone stable release,
if you actually need the missing third party modules.

Hope this helps.
