Just a typo in the HTML version -
"Inputs for, TeX extensions included under tex, instead of ..."
The comma after "Inputs for" is wrong (and not present in the pdf version).
I have one question though: In Extensions
<http://tug.org/ftp/tex/draft-tds/tds-1.094/#Extensions> I don't really
understand the arguments for moving extensions under the top-level tex
directory. Probably I just don't really understand what you are trying to say
or maybe the examples are bad. Going from texmf/pdftex to texmf/tex/pdftex
doesn't seem to solve any search path problems for me. (Going from
texmf/pdftex to texmf/tex/FORMAT/pdftex, however, would make a difference.)
Please enlighten me.
For example where should pdflatex.ini go following the new TDS.
(In current teTeX it's located in texmf/pdftex/latex/config/pdflatex.ini)
