Hi,

There was a complaint about installing experimental texmf: if, after
selecting texmf, you set an essential package for running postinstall
to `remove' (in the case of texmf, remove sed, eg), there's no warning
that the postinstall fails, and thus the installation was not
completed.

I wanted to look into this, and then found the remove scripts patch
wasn't yet in cvs, nor did I see further discussion.  What happened?

Greetings,

Jan.
