Basic package information, as sent by the contributor.
Location: /macros/latex/contrib/fileinfo
Caption: get file infos without loading; \listfiles -- mine only
Description: 'readprov.sty' renders \GetFileInfo from LaTeX's
    'doc.sty' (without the latter being reqired), as well as new robust
    (expandable) variants of it, usable with files that are not really
    loaded (they are quit when their file info is found). So, e.g., you
    can describe packages that are incompatible with each other or with
    packages that your document uses. You even can report about various
    class files. Such files also enter \listfiles.

    'myfilist.sty' uses this so \listfiles need not show files that were
    used, rather just files you want to know about. In a "TeX script,"
    you can choose some files and their order. Their names can be output
    into a plain text file with their dates, version ids, and one-line
    descriptions, formatted in the way \listfiles does it after a LaTeX
    run. This way you can get an overview of, e.g., some package bundle
