Com­mu­ni­ca­tion

Where can I give feed­back on the CTAN por­tal?

Feed­back on the por­tal it­self – not the con­tent – can be placed in the Guest Book. This is meant for state­ments. Don't ex­pect that some­one dis­cusses via this page.

If you want to dis­cuss some­thing use the pub­lic mail­ing list to which you can sub­scribe un­der

The sub­scrip­tion to this mail­ing list is mod­er­ated. Thus it may take a few sec­onds…

Where can I re­quest fea­tures for the por­tal?

Your chances to get a fea­ture into the CTAN por­tal in­crease if you do not just re­quest some­thing but pro­pose to con­tribute some­thing. Keep this in mind when you make a pro­posal.

Skins

How can I get rid of these HTMLi­fied TeX lo­gos?

You can se­lect a skin which suits you best. Some of them are us­ing text rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the lo­gos. Espe­cially the plain skins are of this type. The skin can be se­lected un­der Set­tings which is ac­ces­si­ble on each page. The se­lected skin is stored in a cookie of the Browser. Thus no lo­gin is re­quired for this fea­ture.

How can I get rid of the vary­ing ap­pear­ance of the pages?

If you don't have cho­sen your fa­vorite skin the de­fault skin is used. The de­fault skin can vary tak­ing into ac­count sea­sonal events. If you don't like this you can sim­ply se­lect a fixed skin un­der Set­tings which is ac­ces­si­ble on each page.
