Thanks, the audit of the most recent TL repository is now available


Some results would be interesting for upstream as well.

It is good to hear from you because I have a proposal for the
modification of macros.fonts in the "fontpackages". The reason is that
I had to manually hack it in order to let the TeX Live auto-generation

The problem is that TeX Live provides a package "Asana-Math" which
provides couple of fonts. Note that there are upper case letters in
the name.

In the macros.fonts you enforce conversion of the package name to lower
case which breaks build and inter-package dependencies because you have:




generated by %_font_pkg macro in macros.fonts. It requires
texlive-asana-math package which doesn't exist due to erroneous
conversion to lower case.

Patch to fix macros.fonts is attached.
