* monolithic math
currently math is one big package and installing it pulls in nearly
everything through the docs. Is it planned to split it into -lib and -doc?

We were waiting for a reason. This is one. I'll try it on my flight home tonight. (Never done any package management before.)

Thanks for tackling this. I think its worth the effort.

I suppose this is a good rule of thumb: if your docs make pictures, put them in a separate package.

Yes, thats a good minimum requirement. For standalone builds or for small devices it would be even better if it's possible to build everything that might be useful in
this setting without a single doc.

* raco pkg warnings
On every command i get
warning: tool "pkg" registered twice: "pkg" and
warning: tool "setup" registered twice: "setup" and
warning: tool "link" registered twice: "link" and
 /home/hamm_to/tmp/racket/_tmp/racket- is the used installation.

What command did you run to get this error? I haven't been able to replicate it.

It seems to only happen if i have "PLTCOLLECTS=:", not if it's set to anything else to unset.
Then a "raco pkg" is enough to trigger it.

You can see these with `raco pkg show`.  Is that what you're looking for?

Exactly what i was looking for (raco pkg show -a -d). Thanks.

I think I need more details.

If you have pkg A installed, then it should only download a small
checksum to see if A needs to be updated. If this is broken, then it
is an error.

That works as supposed.

If you do NOT have pkg A installed, then it will download the full
file. If that install fails, then 'raco pkg' cleans up after itself
and deletes the things it downloaded. Apt does not do this and saves
everything in a temporary directory that must be manually cleaned. I
did not implement that because it feels wrong to run a command like
'raco pkg clean-old-tmp-files' or something. But it sounds like you
want that?

Yes, that's what i had in mind because I'm used to this behavior and i was
wondering why raco downloaded the files over and over on a _failed_ install
(Only noticed it because it was a relatively large install). But the temporary files are a good point that i completely forgot. I think, in hope that installs
(hopefully) rarely fail it's better as it is now.
