I asked this question to find out if an error I encountered after updating TeXLive was a bug. Even if it was a bug, I needed a short-term solution to continue my work until the package was fixed.
@cfr provided such a solution and also confirmed that it was a bug. I reported it to the package author, who has since fixed it.
Should I now delete the question, since the error is fixed? Or might it still be valid for people who have not updated their systems or for the poor Debian repository-package users who will always be two years behind? Or could it serve as an example of how to handle problems that are possibly bugs?
And if I delete it, will I deprive the answerer of deserved reputation?
(Also, do I accept the answer even though the real answer is the fix that the package author provided? Or should I add an answer explaining what the package author fixed?)
