Yes, I already excluded the packages that have a README.TEXLIVE. Btw, it would be nice if TeXdoc used the same viewer for README.TEXLIVE than for text files without warning because at the moment TeXdoc complains "texdoc warning: No viewer_TEXLIVE defined, using viewer_txt."

Indeed, I searched for docs without checking that the corresponding packages were still alive :-(
However, I do have easyeqn.sty and tclldoc.sty, so I think they are still present in TeX Live. They are also listed on CTAN, under the TL bundle names "easy" and "tcldoc".

OK, thanks.

Yes, HTML is even better than PDF since everybody has a web browser and package manuals are usually viewed on screen.
