The UK TeX FAQ

Origins and maintenance

This FAQ was started as a committee effort by the UK TeX Users' Group. For many years it was maintained by Robin Fairbairns. It is now a community-driven effort but still co-ordinated by the UK-TUG group.

If you wish to offer help, or to comment on the content of the FAQ, please mail faq@tex.ac.uk or log an issue on the source GitHub site. You may also send us a GitHub pull request: if you do make your own edits, please see the editing guide and add yourself to the contributors list as part of your request.

Licence

The source of the FAQ itself and its derived products (human-readable versions presented as PDF and HTML) are released under the Creative Commons Zero license.

You are permitted (nay, encouraged) to distribute the FAQ as widely as you like. Please be careful to keep your copy of the FAQ up-to-date: it's possible to mirror the FAQ's directory on CTAN, or to watch the CTAN announcements mailing list (see the "answer" on mailing lists in the FAQ itself).

Further, you are urged to be very careful about modifying the FAQ:

  • the source and its relationship to the macros that support it, and to the dubious Perl scripts that create HTML versions, is extremely fragile; so changes are likely to be tricky to "get right". (see the editing guide for more details)

  • there's a positive danger in publishing un-reviewed advice, particularly if it claims to come from a usually reliable source.

Therefore, if you do have changes to make, please consider submitting them to faq@tex.ac.uk at least in parallel with making changes to your own copy. A statement that details what you've done, in your copy of the FAQ, is particularly useful.
