CTAN update: bundledoc

Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                bundledoc

package.

Version number: 3.2
License type: lppl

Summary description: Bundle together all the files needed to build a
LaTeX document.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

bundledoc is a post-processor for the snapshot package that bundles
together all the classes, packages, and files needed to build a given
LaTeX document.  It reads the .dep file that snapshot produces, finds
each of the files mentioned therein, and archives them into a
single .tar.gz (or .zip, or whatever) file, suitable for moving across
systems, transmitting to a colleague, etc.

As an added bonus, this distribution includes a small script called
arlatex.  arlatex is a LaTeX-specific archiving program that combines a
bunch of files into a single .tex file.  When the .tex file is run
through latex, all of the original files are recreated and the LaTeX
document is built.  bundledoc can be easily configured to use arlatex
as its archiver in place of tar, zip, etc.

Version 3.2 includes a new texlive-unix-arlatex.cfg script that
