Web Developer. I tend to work with Ruby on Rails lately, but love many other options as well.

@Joseph that seems like a great move forward IMO

Question answered in comments above :) I mistakenly took the extra packages as part of the core LaTeX team and not as third party add-ons which would obviously require them to be separate packages. I feel silly now, as that makes so much sense.

Good points. I see what you mean. I guess, for some reason, I had it in my head that they weren't really third party plugins.

I suppose, but are there really enough little (yet big enough) addons to warrant an entire package for each thing? over 2000 packages seems gigantic.
