Please unblock texlive-extra

Dear release team,

the Debian TeX Task Force would be grateful if you could 

unblock texlive-extra/2005.dfsg.2-4

which is now 12 days old. This upload fixes one important, two normal and
one wishlist bug - the changes are small and non-disruptive.  Without
it, etch would still be a great Debian release, but with it, its texlive
part would be even better.  Here's the changelog:

 texlive-extra (2005.dfsg.2-4) unstable; urgency=low
   * downgrade the relation from fonts-extra to cm-super from depends to
     suggests. Default would be recommends, but a suggests is enough.
     (Closes: #399064)
   * add the missing dstroke.map, and add the addMap action to the config
     file (Closes: #400780)
   * activate ugq.map (Closes: #374351)
   * remap infix-RPN.tex and .sty from the doc hieracy to texmf-texlive
     (Closes: #402987) (closes Ubuntu bug #69690)


- software included in texlive upstream which exists as a separate
  Debian package usually gets a Recommends or Suggests, cm-super was an
  exception for "historical reasons" (iow it was forgotten).

- adding and activating font map files means that it's not only possible
  to run latex on a file using those fonts, but to actually create a PS
  or PDF file - so this only adds functionality without a possibility to
  break anything.

- "remap" is maybe a bit too technical, here it just means means "move
  the files".  Where they belong.

debdiff output for the dsc file and the list of deb files are available
