Update on May 11, 2019:
From the third item of the Basic Requirements section of TUG webpage TeX Live package contributions, TeX Live
must refrain from installing generated documentation when there is no source.
Therefore, the source-free doc of
clrscode should not been included by TeX Live.
Up to now, TeX Live has distributed new versions of packages
IEEEtran with source-free docs being deleted, and being substituted by the special README.TEXLIVE file (as shown in @Ulrike Fischer's answer).
If anyone finds other similar violations, you can write to
On CTAN, the package
clrscode3e has 3 files, a 75kB PDF documentation, an sty source code, and a README. But using
tlmgr, I always can not install the PDF doc. (The package itself can be used and works all right.) The similar package
clrscode, which also has 3 files (pdf + sty + README) on CTAN, can be installed from
tlmgr with doc as expected.
I also find that my local file
clrscode3e.tlpobj, located in
TEXMFDIST/../tlpkg/tlpobj/, does not include the PDF doc under tag
docfiles, compared to the similar file
$ cat clrscode3e.tlpobj | grep -A 3 'docfiles' docfiles size=2 texmf-dist/doc/latex/clrscode3e/README details="Readme" texmf-dist/doc/latex/clrscode3e/README.TEXLIVE runfiles size=4 $ cat clrscode.tlpobj | grep -A 3 'docfiles' docfiles size=11 texmf-dist/doc/latex/clrscode/README texmf-dist/doc/latex/clrscode/clrscode.pdf details="Package documentation" runfiles size=3
Also, the message received from
tlmgr info clrscode3e shows the sizes of package
doc: 9k, run: 17k
The sizes are so small that definitely no PDF docs is included.
How these differences are produced? And whom I can send feedback about "can not install PDF doc of clrscode3e" to, the maintainer of the package, the texlive team, or the CTAN team?
I am using
