texlive-logreq 51265 Support for automation of the LaTeX workflow
The package helps to automate a typical LaTeX workflow that involves running LaTeX several times and running tools such as BibTeX or makeindex. It will log requests like "please rerun LaTeX" or "please run BibTeX on file X" to an external file in a machine-readable format. Compiler scripts and integrated LaTeX editing environments may parse this file to determine the next steps in the workflow. In sum, the package will do two things:
enable package authors to use LaTeX commands to issue requests, and
collect all requests from all packages and write them to an external XML file.
