> Well, the latexmk stuff I put together is for TeXShop which is NOT part of CTAN. The fact is that the latexmk program is already on CTAN and is also part of TeX Live. I supply a separate version with some custom configuration files (actually, some of the stuff comes with the latexmk distribution on CTAN) and setup for TeXshop. The reason I don't just use the version that is part of TeX Live is that there are some users of TeXshop who are using (much) older TeX distributions which don't have latexmk and also to make sure that my supplied engine and configuration files are guaranteed to still work if there is drastic change in latexmk until I can update my supplied system.

The one thing that might be of general use (a scaled Courier font) already is on CTAN and in TeX Live.

One other thing... although it has nothing directly to do with this.
Once Apple's iCloud goes operational some time this Autumn my iDisk space on (mac/me).com where I put all my files for download will have one year left before it will be gone. There is certainly no rush but it would be nice if someone had some space on a server somewhere that I could use for distribution of my files. I no longer have a counter to get some idea how much traffic there is (disappeared when mac.com gave way to me.com) on the site but I'm sure it's quite light.
Again, no rush...
