If I can respond as a singular "you", here is my ideal toolset.
1. Breakout "jade" as a separate package.
2. Include a list of support packages and which versions are needed.
a. Groff - add in the -mgs macro if it is reaaly needed. This was
not included in my "GNU troff version 1.10"
d. TeX - add the macros not included in the official TUG package.
f. All other packages and their URL's which are required.
3. All packages be available as tar-balls either gzipped or
bk2-zipped. All of us don't run Debian, RedHat, SuSe or any other
Linux distribution which use rpm. Any CVS references to users is
meaningless and superflous.
4. Be available from an ftp site.
5. The HTML display should provide the complete file name. When
browsing "http://www.us.sgmltools.org" with Netscape, the source
directory lists six "sgmltools ...." files without any hint of the
6. It must compile on smaller machines. All of us don't have access
to corporate or University monstrous machines. The GNU g++
compiler really requires an ungodly amount of virtual memory.
