PS : so ~/.texdoc.cnf whould have the greatest priority, right?
The idea being that the TEXMFHOME can be used for local updates on
systems you're using w/o admin privileges (that's the first use I
made of it, personally) (or don't want to make them globally),
but a file lying directly in your home is something really personal.
Precisely. And then we can even document "here is how to run from svn" :).
I fear having two different files for the same purpose (namely
~/.texdoc.cnf and the present file) can be a source of confusion
hence possibly problems.
We already look for a zillion (approximately :) texdoc.cnf files. Maybe
each one theoretically serves a specific purpose, but I doubt most
casual users see this, even those reading the documentation. I can't
see that adding one more is going to cause any serious confusion.
