-tds – A structured copy of the distribution

This bundle provides a set of zip file modules containing TDS-compliant trees for items of the distribution (both the base system and required packages), together with ‘user-friendly’ documentation (PDF files with navigation support using bookmarks and links).

A further module (knuth) performs the same service for Knuth’s software distribution.

This bundle has been moved to the /obsolete branch of the archive as of April 2020 because the files are now very much out of date.
