On the UK-DMCA, quoting myself from a debian-uk post:
The consultation lasts until the end of October and I think they are looking to pass the bill by the end of year. It's only August and we have to be careful not to move too fast. We are fighting against the treacle of people's attention spans and it takes a massive amount of energy to keep anything moving against that for months. More energy than we have. We should wait until a few (3-4, I guess) weeks before the vote and blitz the press (as was done for the RIP extension, but then we didn't have much choice about the timing). Though that doesn't mean that we can't start preparing for it before then.
After giving up ages ago on getting any of the funky ConTeXt stuff working, I took the plunge and installed TeTeX, ConTeXt and Metafun manually. Seems to be working - I managed to compile this at least (just a few rip offs of examples from the metafun manual). I need to run mpost manually though.
