Don't know whether it is orthodox, but as the urgency of the issue, I
got the the mail addres of ftp-masters from pabs on IRC (thanks pabs)
and added to CC.

Ftp-masters, sorry to break the protocol, but due to the current
situation, it'll be very helpful if the poppler-data package sitting in
NEW will be reviewed soonish so that it can be decided whether the NMU
of xpdf-CJK packages should be done.  Obviously poppler-data is the best
way to solve the issue.  Thanks very much.
