[qiime2-amplicon-2023.9] TinyTeX

After setting up the qiime2-amplicon-2023.9 conda environment, there is a message:

To install TinyTeX with `tinytex::install_tinytex()` the system must have a functional Perl
installation with a `File::Find` module. Most end-user systems will already satisfy this
requirement; however, some minimal contexts (e.g., containers) may not. Perl is available
via Conda Forge as the package `perl`. See https://github.com/rstudio/tinytex/issues/419

I've read the github issue but I'm unclear as to what this pertains and if an additional installation is required. It seems the environment has perl, and the tinytex package mentioned in the github issue:

Should the message be ignored or is additional action required?


Hello Leon,

That looks like a warning to me, and warnings do not need action.

It seems the environment has perl, and the tinytex package mentioned in the github issue

Great! Let us know if you have any issues.
