What functions are needed for the tlpdb?
Is there somewhere a list of necessary functionality?
I could imagine things like
- adding a package
- removing a package
- changing the entries of a package
And: where do the information comes from?
Will the categorization be derived from the
location of the files in the directory-tree?
And from the filename-extension (*.sty, *.pdf, *.tex)?
Or will there be necessarily someone who must check the
classification of the files?
So: what is part of human action, and what will/should/can be done
by the tlpdb-software automatically?
