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)

Comments:

- 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
at

and

respectively.

Best wishes

The long unaccomplished wail in the middle of a Scottish folk song
where the pipes nip around the corner for a couple of drinks.
