That's great, but I'm wondering whether this also includes trigger
support for mktexlsr?  Also, will this be in lenny?

cheers,

IIRC Norbert decided not to implement triggers for mktexlsr for now,
as the command does not need that much system resources.

It is in experimental now. How much time needs a package to be in
experimental until one can consider it is good enough for unstable?
How many users do we have for the new version? Can we assume from the
not appearing bug reports, that the package is stable?

Hrm, my mail was mainly motivated by the gprolog build on the Debian
GNU/Hurd buildd.  It installed half/all of texlive, failed very early in
configure, and removed all of it.  It took more then 24 *hours* to do
that, and as I saw those "mktexlsr" messages for most of that time, I
assumed that was the culprit, maybe.  It could be that mktexslr does
something which turns out to be pathological on hurd-i386 only.

Well, the usual rules for experimental apply - few people use it unless

Didn't it call updmap, too?  That takes much more time than
mktexlsr. Format generation is also rather slow.

I thought that there is an automatic way of updating texmf trees from
CTAN?  Don't your scripts check whether anything has been uploaded to
CTAN:/tex-archive/fonts/utilities/fontinst/doc?  And if they to, how do
you exclude the talks directory?  And if they do not - there are some
automatic updates, aren't there - why is this part not covered?

We are the maintainer for all texlive packages, so that should concern
us. Can you please post the result of 

ls /etc/texmf/fmt.d/

There seems to be some omega stuff in there which causes the
"dependency" on texlive-omega.
