    Hi,
    I've asked this question on tex.stackexchange.com, but I think this forum is
    probably more appropriate:
    I've heard that it is difficult to install my new statrep package using
    MiKTeX. The dtx file is self-extracting, but I think MiKTeX doesn't expect to
    work with a dtx file.

    Can someone provide a "best practice" for a CTAN package bundle that is
    friendly for MiKTeX, TeX Live, and manual installation? Perhaps including the
    .sty files and a plain .ins file even though the dtx is self-extracting?
