  * The texlive-bin source package is now handled independently from the
    other TeXLive source packages, i.e. it is not configured in
    tpm2deb.cfg in our svn repository and the debian directory. Instead,
    it now looks more like a standard compiled package and should be
    easier to work on in case of security uploads or NMUs.
  * This also means that some of it's older binary packages, like
    texlive-metapost, have moved source package. By chance, this closes:
    #517600, #517601
  * Support a create-orig-source target in debian/rules.  The orig.tar.gz
    is now either wget'ed if we are working on a released version, or
    automatically created from a svn repository for development
  * There are now only three binary packages, texlive-binaries and the two
    library packages.  texlive-binaries Replaces/Conflicts/Provides
    texlive-base-bin in order to get a working (if not smooth)
  * Add Build-Depends: time, since the upstream Build script uses it
  * Don't install the format links, they will generated by dh_installtex
    in the other packages, also do not install the man pages for the 
  * do not install rungs, it is not necessary
  * do not install script links, they will be shipped together with
    the script itself
  * Add patch 60_unneeded_linking. These needs testing!

    patch-stamp & unpatch targets
  * Install changelog into libkpathsea packages

  * add texlive-binaries.prerm to remove the alternative
  * add same version number to libkpathsea-dev deps on libkpathsea5 to make
    lintian happy
  * make texlive-binaries replace/conflict/provide dvipdfmx (in accordance
    with the maintainer of dvipdfmx we will phase out dvipdfmx itself)
  * new source package format "3.0 (quilt)" can be used (closes: #538557)
  * Install copyright file
  * add patch for libpoppler 0.12 (thanks to Ubuntu for inspiration)
