As I was surfing the net tonight I came across this blog entry, 
primarily on DocBook but also on LaTeX, the MacTeX site and "an 
award-winning installer program that is a showcase of Apple 


More specifically, the quotation is:

"Look at the Mac-Tex website. Here, you can find a centralized listing 
of where to get the core LaTeX engine, which is maintained in an 
elegant fashion by a single individual who has developed an 
award-winning installer program that is a showcase of Apple technology. 
You can find listings of a number of different editing tools that work 
specifically with LaTeX, such as TexShop, iTexMac, and Texmaker. You 
can find resources on getting started, and on learning more 
sophisticated approaches. And finally, you can find a community: a very 
helpful community."

I don't know what fellow co-listers will think, but I have a pretty 
good idea of whom the mysterious single individual may be, who's 
maintaining the MacTeX site, and who made these site and community 
possible. Hurray for them!
