Alain, as my memory speaks there were emails touching upon the issues 
between TeXLive 2007 and its set up for Macs, e.g. gwTeX and MacTex, 
perhaps in emails by Richard Koch (I think in Feb-March). And also, I am 
not sure if Bruno wrote directly about that relation, but in general, 
everything that he wrote is relevant to the general picture; and 
definitely Gerben's decisions are the foundational. But it seems there 
has been no addressing of issues related to synchronized set ups of 
TeXLive for OSX (of course on Macs) and Linux. I myself would like to 
know about such possibilities, incl. comparison and difficulties. This 
seems quite relevant with the coming up OSX 10.5 in June.
