    The team released a new version of texdoc-online, version 0.4.0. It features improved handling of overwriting defaults and allows for bundling fonts and scripts to help protecting your privacy. See the CHANGELOG for a full list of release notes.

    Thank you for handling my PR!

    I like that you a) choose debian and b) texlive-full. With that, you're image is not far away from mine at https://github.com/dante-ev/docker-texlive/blob/188b8be4aad340b79fdf43ef3819b62f332d60fb/Dockerfile#L37. I wonder whether I should create pull requests based on my image? - Should we discuss each addition one-by-one? E.g., pkcheck could be a good addition, but support for pax (which requries Java) is not good b/c of size of the image

    @koppor: Ben Frank and I are planning a TB article on templates, so I was thinking of mentioning our tools and some perspectives for the future. :)
    We could discuss some points in here. :)

    Sure. I was going to write-up something, too. Thus, joined forces sounds great!

    I am also working on a template-generator https://github.com/latextemplates/generator-latex-template. The difference to https://gitlab.com/islandoftex/texplate seems to be that I a) provide a choice for each "minor" thing to include/exclude and b) try to offer a form .preamble, .example for each package (hyperref, csquotes, ...). See https://github.com/latextemplates/generator-latex-template/tree/lncs/generators/app/templates for the current lists of contents
    Still have to finish the first "real" template generation. I am close in the context of LNCS.
    Let's see, what our discussion reveals.
    I am still struggling with lualatex vs. pdflatex. On the one hand, I want to provide the users to give the freedom of choice at each compilation, on the other hand, I want to have clean .tex files. - For the choice, I need much \ifluatex in the .tex files, which clutters them very much.

    ooh dreams
    On a more serious note, we want to have a series of abstract layers that can talk to each other.

    Hey! I am tryting to get luaotfload-tool running. However, it fails because "lualibs" cannot be found. 5 years ago, there was texlive-lualibs in debain; that seems to be integrated in texlive-luatex. Think, I do not need to install that package, because it is included in texlive

    Hi! Thanks so much for setting up this community. I have found you via the documentation lookup site (the search seems better than ctan already). I use texlive without all of the source/manuals by default, so I've been looking for a simple website like yours to get the manuals that I need, quickly and without hassle. My only comment so far is that it took me a long time to find the website (texdoc.org)... maybe it needs some better SEO or discoverability? In both google and duckduckgo, searching for e.g. "latex documentation" doesn't seem to bring up your site very easily. Maybe asking for a sidebar link at https://www.latex-project.org/help/documentation/ would also be possible?
