It's been a while since I had to reinstall my machine. But I just
have, and I'm finding myself without the latex3 '.sty' files where
latex can find them.
I was a bit surprised they weren't included in the Arch package
`texlive-core`, which include l3kernel. This explains a bug report I
received several months ago regarding `pkgloader`, which loads
`l3prop`. (Are all my expl3 packages now broken?)
Oh well, I checked out the svn trunk. The old build system seems to
have been replaced by `build.lua`. It seems easy enough to use, but I
can't manage to generate the required .sty files. In trying to bypass
the build system, I just run: `cd l3kernel; tex l3.ins`. It seems all
of the expected .sty files are now being concatenated into a file
`expl3-code.tex` rather than generated outright. This is also true for
the version on CTAN.
It seems I've missed a lot. Could someone bring me up to date? :-/
