Hi all!

Just to recap: Should I upload new context package to Debian, as it asks
unconditionally for lm math fonts.

Ok, I got it. Sorry for missing this: The point is that Debian has
	lmodern 1.00
installed, which seems to include the math fonts. 

Do you know, have there been important changes between 1.00 and 1.010
concerning this stuff? And if not, we could also think about uploading
another package for lmodern to Debian, but this is for Florent.

If not, then I just upload and add a dependency on lmodern >= 1.00 which
should be enough.

Best wishes
